A marvelous Gallery
The Art Gallery was founded in 1776 together with the Academy of Fine Arts, by the will of the Empress Maria Teresa d'Austria. When Milan became, under Napoleon, the capital of the Reign of Italy, the Pinacoteca was transformed into a museum that displayed the most significant works from the conquered territories of the French army.
Therefore, the Pinacoteca di Brera, unlike many others art museums such as the Uffizi Gallery of Florence, is not born from private collections, but from the public and politic ones, and today it houses an extraordinary collection of Venetian and Lombard paintings, ranging from prehistoric to contemporary art.
The collection is mainly based on paintings coming from the monasteries and churches abolished by Napoleon in the early years of the 19th Century. In 1814 the Congress of Vienna decreed the restitution to the rightful owners of all the works stolen in the Napoleonic period, so the Pinacoteca too had to give up some masterpieces, but continued to be enriched with works such as the famous Supper in Emmaus by Caravaggio, came here in 1926.
