About National Gallery of Thailand
The National Museum of Thailand, located near the Grand Palace in Bangkok, was established in 1974 and is the most important museum in Thailand, focusing on Thai traditional and contemporary art, with a collection of works by Thai artists from the 17th century to the present.
Thai art is unique in style, with profound influences from Impressionist and Cubist artists, but does not dominate, and Thai artists innovate on their foundations, thus giving it a fresh and new feel. The collection includes sculptures, paintings, prints, and photographs, all of which are unique in their own way, each with their own novelty and innovation. In order for Thai artists to better absorb international art and integrate into the world, the National Museum of Thailand often organizes international exhibitions or collaborative exchange programs with renowned art museums in other countries to enrich itself.
