The collection was created in 1897 on occasion of the city’s second Art Biennale. The focus of the museum’s collections consists of works that won prizes or were acquired in the early decades of the Biennale. These include famous masterpieces, such as Klimt’s Judith II (Salomè, 1909) and Chagall’s Rabbi of Vitebsk (1922). One of the museum’s strengths is its vast collection of sculptures, including works in wax by Medardo Rosso, donated to the museum by the artist in 1914. Further acquisitions and bequests have endowed the museum with notable works, from Kandinsky to Klee, Matisse to Moore, as well as a rich selection of works by Italian artists and an important cabinet of graphic art. After restoration works in 2002, the exhibition area has been extended further to the second floor. The Oriental Art Museum, on the third floor, which can be visited with the same ticket. « less
