National Gallery

The National Gallery of London is located in Trafalgar Square, the famous square of the English capital.

The Gallery, founded in 1824, although it was not from its beginnings one of the most renowned museums for its collection, over the centuries it has been improving to reach extraordinary results: today it houses a permanent collection that counts more than two thousand works, in particularly those dating from the mid-twelfth century to the beginning of the last century.

The imposing building that houses the museum has undergone many changes over the centuries as it is considered by many to be unsuitable for its purpose. The first important intervention was made already between 1860 and 1861 with the inclusion of a large gallery. It later also saw the expansion of the two northern wings and the construction of the Sainsbury Wing in the 1990s.

The peculiarity of the National Gallery, as well as its main strength and attraction, lies in having at least one work of all the greatest exponents of the various eras and artistic schools. Hers is therefore a particularly heterogeneous collection that meets the tastes of a vast public.

The artists exhibited in the museum are many including: Leonardo da Vinci, Paolo Uccello, Piero della Francesca, Bellini, Rembrandt, Canaletto, Turner, Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh.
