The Brera Art Gallery
100 Masterpieces

The volume presents a permanent exhibition among the emblematic works of the Brera Art Gallery, narrating both the history of commissions and provenance and the artistic importance thereof. The masters of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the protagonists of the Renaissance and Venetian colorism.

From Raphael’s Marriage of the Virgin to the Sola Busca Tarot Cards, the oldest and only complete Renaissance deck known to date; from Canaletto’s views to the romantic canvases of Hayez.

The realistic painting of the late nineteenth century, the instant brushstrokes of Lega and Segantini, the dreamlike and symbolic divisionism of Gaetano Previati, and the twentieth-century avant-garde, represented by the masterpieces of Boccioni, Carrà, Morandi, De Pisis, Mafai, Guttuso, and Picasso.
