Gems of impressionism

Gems of Impressionism.
Paintings from the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
Rome is the only European city to host for the first time an exhibition of the masterpieces of the Impressionist and Post Impressionist collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington. Towards the end of the 19220s, the American banker, businessman, industrialist, Andrew W. Mellon, started what would become one of the most important art collections in the world, with the ambition to embrace the best of European art from the Middle Ages to the eighteenth century. After his death in 1937, his offspring (Paul and Ailsa) carried on his legacy, cultivating the same passion of his father, enriching what is now known as the Mellon Collection, which is kept as a result of a donation, at the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
