Modern Art Gallery 'Skip the line'
Tickets valid also for the Palatine Gallery
Modern Art Gallery, through its 30 rooms, is a great quantity of Italian paintings as well as sculptures from the late 18th century to the early 20th century. Located on the top floor of the Palazzo Pitti, combined with the Costume Gallery, the collection was initiated in the late 18th century by Leopoldo di Lorena and was continually enlarged thanks to subsequent purchases and donations. The collection includes masterpieces of Macchiaioli.
Among these, the works of Giovanni Fattori, Silvestro Lega, Telamaco Signorini and Michele Gordigiani. The favoured subjects of this anti-academic artistic movement were fields of battle with wounded soldiers, the Tuscan coast in the Castiglioncello area, elegant ladies sitting in cafes or at a piano or while walking with friends, or girls, as in the famous Alaide Banti Boldini portrait. The Macchiaioli style, if it can be compared in some way to the Impressionists, he created his personal and intense way on painting.
Open Tuesday to Sunday 8:15 am - 6:50 pm.
Closed Monday, January 1st, May 1st and December 25th.
