Peacock Room at the Freer Gallery of Art
The most famous display in the Freer Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the Peacock Room is an opulently decorated dining room decorated first by James McNeill Whistler and later edited by Freer. It was originally in a London home. Sitting on the National Mall and part of the Smithsonian Institution, the Freer Gallery opened in 1923 to house the art collection of Charles Lang Freer. It has since been merged with the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery to form the National Museum of Asian Art for the United States of America.
