The National Gallery of Canada is home to the most important collections of historical and contemporary Canadian art.
The Gallery also maintains Canada’s premier collection of European art from the 14th to the 21st century, as well as important works of American, Asian and Indigenous art and renowned international collections of prints, drawings and photographs.
Created in 1880, the National Gallery of Canada has played a key role in Canadian culture for well over a century. One of its principal missions is to increase access to excellent works of art for all Canadians. To this end, the National Gallery maintains the largest touring art exhibition program in the world.
