Founded "for the purpose of encouraging American genius" (no pressure), the Corcoran Gallery was Washington's first art museum and remains one of the city's finest, flawlessly combining historic elegance and cutting-edge modernism within its majestic marble walls. The collection focuses largely on American art from the 18th through 20th centuries, including pieces by John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Andy Warhol and Mark Rothko, although an impressive European collection and marvelous modern exhibits are also featured.
