Discover Washington, D.C.’s Impressionism Art
Explore one of the most popular museums in Washington, D.C. on this guided, 2-hour, small group walking tour of the National Gallery of Art. See world-famous works by Edouard Manet, Eugene Boudin, Mary Cassatt, Paul Cezann, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Camille Pissaro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Claude Monet, and many others. Learn about the politics behind the cutthroat French salon, and those that didn’t want to please the power brokers behind that salon. Get a fun look at the National Gallery of Art’s most prized paintings — and uncover some hidden gems along the way — on this fast-paced 2-hour art tour.
The National Gallery of Art opened its doors in 1941 by Andrew W. Mellon founder, financier and art collector, who believed the nation deserved a collection that was open and free to the public — one that could hold its own with the greatest art collections in the world. And, through various donations, the National Gallery of Art has become one of the best museums in America.
Tour Guide | Meghan Hanson
Hello, my name is Meghan Hanson, and I’m looking forward to being your next tour guide. I started out my career with a Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University in Anthropology focusing on Museum Studies and complimenting it with an Art History minor. I spent a few years as the Guest Services coordinator for the Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House in Chicago, IL. It was there that I was able to truly experience the interplay between life and art.
I love looking at what art says about the life we live, the life we hope for, and the life we try to hide. Since becoming a certified international tour director, that lesson has informed my commentary no matter what venue or city I am in. I am delighted to be working with Adventures for Creative Tourists to see what we can explore in the artistry of Washington, D.C.!
