Phillips originally housed the collection in galleries in his home, which is now the southern section of the museum building. The museum is located in Washington, DC’s historic Dupont Circle neighborhood. The permanent collection features Impressionist and modern American and European works and includes artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, El Greco, Vincent van Gogh, Georges Braque, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Claude Monet, Honoré Daumier, Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove, Mark Rothko, Milton Avery, Jacob Lawrence, and Richard Diebenkorn, among others.
