Official site

The Phillips Collection :A Modern Vision in Washington DC is known as one of the finest private collections in the US, and was founded in 1918 located at a private residence, with works centered around the collection of Duncan Phillips (1886-1966), a collector of discerning perception, who was born into the family of a wealthy businessman. The Phillips celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2018. And it was opened to the public in 1921 as America’s first museum of modern art, even before the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Phillips was always strict in his selection, and this is evident in the high quality of each one of the works that are part of the collection. This exhibition displays about 75 works from the collection of one of the world’s leading modern art museums, ranging from the masters of the 19th century, including Ingres, Corot, Delacroix, to Courbet, as well as the father of modern painting, Manet, and Impressionists such as Degas, Cezanne and Monet, post-Impressionists like Gauguin, up to those artists who opened up new art, such as Bonnard, Klee, Picasso, and Braque.
