The National Gallery in London, founded in 1824, houses a rich collection of over 2,300 paintings dating from the mid-13th century to 1900 in its home on Trafalgar Square.
The present building, on the northern side of Trafalgar Square, is the third to house the Gallery, and like its predecessors it has often been deemed inadequate. The facade by William Wilkins is the only part of his original building of 1832–8 that remains essentially unchanged; the structure as a whole has been altered and expanded in a piecemeal manner throughout its history. The Sainsbury Wing, an extension to the west by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, is a notable example of Postmodernist architecture in Britain.
The National Gallery houses one of the greatest collections of Western European painting in the world. These pictures belong to the public and entrance to see them is free.
The collection includes works from the greatest masters: Paolo Uccello, Pierro della Francesca, Jan van Eyck, Giovanni Bellini, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Tiziano, Caravaggio, Rubens, Vélazquez, Poussin, Cézanne, Monet, Renoir, Vincent van Gogh and many others.
