Corcoran Gallery of Art

The Corcoran Gallery of Art houses Washington’s oldest art collection. Featuring works by impressionists, the Hudson River School and others, the Corcoran’s permanent collection numbers over 11,000 works.

Considered one of the world’s great art galleries, the Corcoran Gallery of Art is located in the heart of Washington. The Gallery is not part of the Smithsonian Institution, so admission is required. A suggested fee of  $3 will gain you entrance into a world-renowned collection of American, Dutch and Flemish masterpieces.

The emphasis at the Corcoran is on American art, including examples of 18th century portraiture and The Hudson River School, all the way to the 20th century masters like Stella and Lichtenstein. The Walker collection has European paintings from the late 19th and early 20th century including works by Monet and Renoir.  Dutch, Flemish and French Romantic art enthusiasts will enjoy the pieces in the Clark collection, featuring the restored Salon Dore of the Hotel d’Orsay in Paris.

This year "45th Biennial: The Corcoran Collects" is exhibited. It is a collection of 200 newly acquired works by artists like Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt and James Hyde.
