Highlights

Instead of wandering purposelessly in the National Gallery of Art, Tosca will lead you into an in-depth visit of the museum’s history and its masterpieces. You have heard of Raphael, Da Vinci, Titian, Rembrandt, Monet but do you really know their lives and why they are seen as geniuses? We’ll dive into the lives of the great masters as we wander the rooms of the NGA.
We’ll go from the only Da Vinci in America before seeing Monet’s “Japanese Footbridge” to witness the different styles and evolutions in art. You’ll be armed with the information and history that you’ll need to appreciate the works of art on display.

Art with Tosca offers tours of cultural institutions in Washington D.C and online lectures about art history. Tosca brings you an extensive knowledge about European Art history having studied and lived between Paris, London and Italy.

I don't usually do tours because I like going at my own pace but after taking Tosca's tour, I honestly can't imagine visiting the National Gallery in DC without her. She had carefully selected the most important pieces in the gallery and was very knowledgeable about each one. Even as we were passing other paintings, she pointed out things to look out for in all paintings which I would never have thought of. She's excellent at answering questions and discussing new things that come up. I highly recommend Tosca for a tour!

Tosca delighted my family with her deep knowledge of the art as well as the history and culture of the artists’ times. She answered our questions and paced the tour well. Our tour with Tosca was a memorable highlight of our time in DC.

We’ll dive into the lives of the painters behind some of the world’s most famous paintings. If none of the following names ring a bell to you, we’ll make sure that they do by the end of the tour. We’ll go from Da Vinci’s “Portrait of Ginevra de’ Benci” before fast-forwarding to Monet’s “Japanese Footbridge” to witness the different styles and evolutions in art over the centuries.
