Freer Gallery of Art

The Freer Gallery of Art was the first Smithsonian museum dedicated to fine art. The Italian-Renaissance building, designed by New York architect Charles Platt, was opened in 1923. Today, the Freer Gallery contains a collection of Asian and American art. The American collection focuses on works from the 19th and 20th century and includes the work of James Whistler.
