Raphael and the Vermeer(Lady at Window) worth a look on its own. Particualrly enjoyable Renaissance works generally! And Cranach. A good collection and worth a visit.

Rubens, Titians, Rembrandts, Cranachs -- an overwhelming collection of the masters. Pieces you won't see anywhere else. Sadly space does not always permit effective display. Walls are crowded.
