The art gallery of Brescia

Completely renovated in 2018, the Pinacoteca houses a splendid and selected art collection in the elegant premises of Palazzo Martinengo da Barco.

The museum display starts with 14th century works, juxtaposing exquisite decorative artworks and paintings. Outstanding masterpieces as Raphael’s Angel and the Christ Blessing and Lorenzo Lotto’s The Adoration of the Shepherds, lead to the heart of the collection, consisting of Brescian Renaissance paintings by Savoldo, Romanino and Moretto whose pictures dedicate particular attention to reality, an approach also shared in the very touching season of Giacomo Ceruti’s “pitocchi”. The itinerary ends with 19th century works by Canova and Hayez.

The Pinacoteca Tosio Martinengo collection was formed between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries thanks to the generosity of private citizens who donated their collections and to the care the Municipality put into collecting and preserving works of art and historical memories that had defined the identity of the city over time and that the important administrative and urban transformations that began at the end of the eighteenth century were gradually removing from their original uses.
