- British National Gallery was founded in 1824 and has one of the best collections of Western European painting, which contains almost all the paintings of great artists, as well as provides all the schools of European painting. To date Gallery contains over two and a half thousand paintings, which date back to the 13-20 centuries. All work in the gallery exhibited in chronological order.
At first paintings were exhibited at the National Gallery mansion Angershteyna and money to the gallery singled out the British Parliament. The collection of paintings of the museum regularly replenished, and in 1831 the gallery had totaled more than a hundred paintings. The main sources of these completions were donations and wills of individuals, as well as assistance to various organizations or sometimes state. It was already clear that the museum requires a separate building, as a collection does not fit into the mansion banker. Therefore, 1831 issued a decree to postpone the British National Gallery. In 1838, the grand opening of the gallery in the building of the British National Museum in Trafalgar Square.
Compared with the collection of the Louvre or the Prado number of exhibits of the National Gallery of London is not too large. But the gallery is proud to have in her collection are masterpieces of European schools since the mid XIII to the early XX century. Museum include for example, meeting artists such as Velázquez, Rembrandt, Rubens, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro and many others. All paintings are exhibited not on national or local schools, and in chronological order. This principle allows us to see the exhibition and work creatively artists from different countries and schools within the same period.
