The Phillips Collection, opened in 1921, is America's first museum of modern art. Featuring a renowned permanent collection of nearly 2,500 works by American and European impressionist and modern artists, the Phillips is internationally recognized for both its incomparable art and its intimate atmosphere. Housed in founder Duncan Phillips' 1897 Georgian Revival home and similarly scaled additions in Washington, DC's Dupont Circle neighborhood, The Phillips Collection is widely regarded as one of the world's finest small museums.
