Scattered throughout the meandering hallways, wings and exhibit rooms of the National Gallery's West Wing is a display of art stretching from the third century to present times - a display over 90,000 pieces strong. Besides having the only da Vinci in the United States, "Ginevra de' Benci", the National Gallery has wonderful and diverse collections of impressionists, early Christian art, 15th century Italian paintings, sculptures, and Rembrandts. The East Wing displays 20th-century works by artists such as Miro, Magritte, Van Gogh, Pissarro and Matisse. With very modern architectural design, the East Wing by I.M. Pei is nearly a work of art in itself.
