A 62-piece collection of rare works, some unseen for decades, by French and American masters — paintings by Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, and oil sketches by Georges Seurat — has been given to the National Gallery of Art. The works are part of a 110-piece bequest from Paul Mellon and Rachel “Bunny” Lambert Mellon.
The pieces are largely intimate works of sizes and proportions that would fill a home, says Kimberly A. Jones, associate curator of French paintings. Pictured: Winslow Homer, "The Flirt," 1874, oil on panel. National Gallery of Art Buy Photo
