  Fountain Garden Beneath Museum's Rotunda
by peach93

The National Gallery of Art has one of the most extensive collections of fine art in the world. Their permanent collection includes works from masters like Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, and Degas, including famous paintings like Renoir's "Girl With Watering Can" and Salvador Dali's "Last Supper". In addition to paintings they have a huge collection of sculptures and Chinese Ming vases. The Gallery features rotating exhibits as well. On the days that I visited they had one of Rembrant's religious paintings. In a building connected to the main museum by an underground tunnel is the Gallery's modern art collection where you can see work by Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, and Henri Matiisse to name only a few. Admission is free.
