National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.: 84 reviews and 236 photos

  Watson and the Shark by Singleton Copley
by dek516

As might be expected in the nation's capitol, the National Gallery houses a large collection of American art. Artists represented include Homer, Whistler, Cassatt, Singelton Copley, Stuart and Bellows. One of my favorites is a Singleton Copley of rescuers aboard a rowboat trying to save a man from a shark attack. A famous portrait of George Washington by Gilbert Stuart is also on display.
