Rarely seen paintings by Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet and Edgar Degas are among an impressive collection of 62 artworks that have been transferred to the National Gallery of Art after being held for decades in a private estate, the museum said Thursday.The paintings, sculptures and other works are among 110 objects bequeathed to the museum from the estate of museum benefactor Paul Mellon after his death in 1999 . The Mellon family already released 48 other artworks during Rachel Mellon's lifetime, including Van Gogh's painting "Green Wheat Fields, Auvers" in December.Now, combined with four other paintings by Seurat and a drawing, the museum has one of the most significant U.S. collections of his work, Jones said.There are nine American paintings in the Mellon group, including two by Winslow Homer.
