Brera Picture Gallery

Art-lovers will feel a pleasant tinge of familiarity when viewing many of the iconic and beautiful Renaissance and early modern paintings held in Milan’s Brera Picture Gallery- one of the Italy’s most important collections of paintings. Reproductions hardly compare to the real thing, though, and visitors will delight in how these unforgettable and masterly canvases of burnt umber, cerulean and a rainbow of other pigments which seem to reach across time, and the beautiful Jesuit monastery which holds them only enhances this impression. Artists featured include Raphael, Pierro Della Francesca, Rembrandt, and Tinterotti.

  • See Mantegna’s iconic 1480 masterwork, “Lamentation Of Christ,” noting his mastery of perspective and realistic handling of the subject matter, and Milan’s Brera Picture Gallery’s other Mantegna masterpiece: his sumptuous gilt 1453 San Luca Altarpiece.
  • Admire the use of chiaroscuro and the composition in Caravaggio’s 1606 masterpiece, “Supper at Emmaus”.
  • While at this Milan Gallery, keep an eye out for Raphael’s 1504 painting “The marriage of the Virgin,” with its beautiful balanced composition, gleaming reds and blues, and excellent mastery of perspective.

The Brera Picture Gallery is located at Via Brera 28, in the former Jesuit monastery that also houses the Brera Academy of art, and is very close to the centre of Milan. To get there, take trams 1, 3, 12, 14, 16, 19, or 27 (or subway line 1) to Dante Cordusio Station, and walk north up Via Broletto, turn right when you see Via dei Bossi. Keep following that road down to Via Brera, and turn left. Keep walking and you’ll see the picture gallery. The walk should take about 11 minutes.
