Washington DC's National Gallery of Art was based on the private collection of Andrew W. Mellon who donated it in 1937.  Mellon selected Amercian architect John Russell Pope to design the building (now known as the West Building) to house the collection.

In 2010, a permanent exhibition the ground floor of the West Building was created to  highlight nearly 100 masterpieces of early American furniture and decorative arts from the collection of George and Linda Kaufman, spanning the period of 1700 - 1830.
