The National Gallery was founded in 1824. The collection comprises works of art from the 13th to the 19th centuries and contains over 2,300 paintings. The National Gallery is a place where you can follow the story of European art, with works by Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Monet and many others.
The National Gallery is divided into galleries according to age, each with a distinctive colour scheme. Benches are placed in front of each of the large paintings. Therefore you can enjoy each one in comfort. It is not uncommon to see people copying a painting in the National Gallery, which is the best chance for modern people to get closer to the art of the past.
In the National Gallery, you can admire the paintings and the setting of each space. If you look up, you can see the intricately carved domed roof. So as well as the paintings, the building itself is a delight to look at.
If you are looking for a simple and easy way to enjoy these beautiful paintings, the National Gallery also offers online exhibitions.
In the world of art, there are no time or space constraints.
