  38. 38. The National Gallery in London is a national collection of European paintings from c. 1300 to c. 1900 (it also includes a few earlier pictures and has recently started to acquire works from the early 20th century). It was founded in 1824 when the government purchased thirty-eight paintings from the collection of John Julius Angerstein, a merchant who died in 1823. They were first displayed in his former house at 100 Pall Mall. Further bequests (including that of Sir George Beaumont) soon necessitated larger premises, and the present building in Trafalgar Square, designed by William Wilkins, was opened in 1838; the gallery shared the premises with the Royal Academy until 1869, by which time it had grown into one of the great collections of the world. Since then there have been various enlargements of the building and in 1991 a major extension was opened - the Sainsbury Wing, the gift of Sir John, Simon. and Timothy Sainsbury. This wing now houses the gallery's early paintings, up to about 1510.
  39. 39. The collection as a whole now has about 2,000 pictures. This is a fairly small number compared with some of the great Continental galleries based on former royal collections, but the National Gallery's paintings surpass those of any other gallery in giving a comprehensive view of the mainstream of European painting from Giotto to Cézanne. Best represented of all are the early Italian and Dutch Schools. The representation of the British School is selective because of the existence of the Tate Gallery as a separate National Gallery of British art. Other well-known national galleries, with their dates of foundation, are: the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh (1859); the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne (1859); the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin (1864); the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa (1880); the National Gallery of Art in Washington (1937); and the Australian National Gallery in Canberra (1976).
