We only had a little over an hour to spend here and it was way too little. The first floor has many portraits of famous Americans. It is fascinating to see some other works from well known artists (e.g. Gilbert Stuart of George Washington fame and a wide selection of George Catlin's works). On the second floor the artistic aspects of the pictures eclipse the historical aspects. This truly a Smithsonian experience not to be missed.
