European Art

The Corcoran’s collection of European art includes painting, sculpture, and works on paper from the 14th through the early 20th centuries. The collection is particularly well-regarded for its 17th-century Dutch landscape and genre paintings, 18th- through early 19th-century British paintings, and 19th-century French paintings, including significant holdings of Realist, Barbizon, and Impressionist landscapes. Included are works by Jean-Baptise-Camille Corot, Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin, Eugène Delacroix, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Thomas Gainsborough, Joshua Reynolds, Gerard ter Borch, and Aelbert Cuyp.
