Omschrijving The Philips Collection:

Encounter superb works of modern art in an intimate setting at The Phillips Collection, an internationally recognized museum in Washington’s vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood.  Paintings by Renoir and Rothko, Bonnard and O’Keeffe, van Gogh and Diebenkorn are among the many stunning impressionist and modern works that fill the museum’s distinctive building, which combines extensive new galleries with the family home of its founder, Duncan Phillips. The collection continues to develop with selective new acquisitions, many by contemporary artists.

Special exhibitions and frequent changes in the arrangement of the permanent collection mean that there’s something new on every visit to the Phillips. The museum’s Center for the Study of Modern Art offers stimulating Conversations with Artists, symposia, lectures, and more, while Sunday Concerts, Phillips after 5 programs, and other events provide additional food for thought. The museum also produces a vigorous, award-winning program of educational outreach that serves more than 6,000 students and teachers a year and indirectly reaches many tens of thousands more.

The Phillips Collection opened to the public in 1921 and is America’s first museum of modern art. It is a private institution that is not a part of the federal government. It relies for support on admission and program fees, endowment income, and generous assistance from individual donors, corporations, foundations, and others.
