American Stories – A Virtual Tour of the American Collection at the National Gallery
October 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
American art is closely tied to this country’s development as a nation. From early beginnings in portraiture to emerging themes of landscape and genre painting, American art reveals the stories that both reflected and shaped an evolving national identity. This tour traces the changes in American art from colonial days to the early twentieth century, and shows how artists responded to critical events in American history. Our guide will be National Gallery of Art docent Estelle Quain, Ph.D. This event is free and open to all but requires registration.
