Programma

*TIME REQUESTS ARE POSSIBLE, JUST ASK*

Instead of wandering purposelessly in the National Gallery of Art, I will lead you into an in-depth visit of the museum’s history and its masterpieces by some of the world’s most acclaimed artists. In order for the guests to better appreciate the experience, this semi-private tour is limited to 6 people. I bring you an extensive knowledge about European Art history having studied and lived between Paris, Italy and London (UK).
You have heard of Raphael, Da Vinci, Titian, Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh but do you really know their lives and why they are geniuses? We’ll dive into the lives of the most famous painters as we wander the rooms of the National Gallery. If none of the following names ring a bell to you, we’ll make sure that they do by the end of the tour.
The National Gallery of Art houses a collection of paintings from the 1300 onwards, there is no shortage of choice. We’ll go from the only Da Vinci painting in America before fast-forwarding to Monet’s “Japanese Footbridge” to witness the different styles and evolutions in art. During this visit, you’ll be armed with the information and history that you’ll need to appreciate the works of art on display at the National Gallery.

PRIVATE GROUP available: up to 15 guests, with group discount! Great for groups, great for teams

Hello,

I am Tosca, French/Italian and passionate about Art History and cultures from a young age.

I have given tours in London, Tuscany and Paris before moving to Washington D.C.

I hold 2 degrees in Art History and I am particularly fond of Renaissance and Italian Art. I developed my professional experience by obtaining a Master’s degree in London in Arts & Cultural Management and working in London’s galleries. I am on a mission to stimulate and inspire people through art and history, to learn and discuss together. When you join one of my tours, it’s more than just storytelling. I’ll share with you a mix of historical information, my favorite art anecdotes and surprising details about art history to make this tour as engaging as it can be.
I’ll also happily share tips to make your stay in D.C. a great experience.

We loved our tour with Tosca! We arrived at the museum early so started looking around. The difference between that experience versus having Tosca as our guide was stark. Tosca's knowledge and stories brought the works to life and deepened our appreciation for what we were seeing. We had a fantastic time. Thank you!

Tosca provided a perfectly curated tour to offer my husband and I with a new appetite for art history. From an introduction to the National Gallery, it’s history and impact, to the most visited pieces of their collection. All done with a thoughtfully crafted timeline “string” that not only allowed us to follow the pression of art but created connections between each of the geographical and historical aspects. She is a professional and kind, knowledgeable and friendly. Do not miss this tour. People stopped us to politely ask for her information as they observed our tour and her informative storytelling was some thing that brought in anyone who was an earshot. Highly recommend it!

Such an incredible experience! Tosca is so knowledgeable and passionate. She provides excellent context for the museum as well as the art that she curated for our tour. My tour was just the two of us, yet other visitors were drawn to us as Tosca provided such thoughtful insights. I highly recommend!

Tosca is thoughtful and passionate about her subject material. She did a wonderful job of tying the pieces we viewed with the historical background of the artist and the time period. She was an engaging speaker who also listened and encouraged questions and discussion. Will absolutely book again!

It was great to have someone who is knowledgeable about art history. She brought interesting perspective on Italian, Dutch, and impressionist artist. She chose certain pieces that cover a great deal of the galleries in the museum.

Tosca selected great pieces and provided insight to all of them. She is a great story teller. Just wish we had more time to see more pieces.
