Housed in a beautiful villa from the eighteenth century, the Galleria d’Arte Moderna (Modern Art Gallery) of Milan contains paintings and sculptures from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. The artwork is distributed throughout the beautiful Villa Reale, which still preserves some of its original decoration.
Many of the masterpieces of Milan’s greatest artists are housed in the Galleria d’Arte Moderna including paintings by Francesco Hayez, Marchesi Pompeo, Andrea Appiani, Tranquillo Cremona, Juan Segantini, Faruffini Frederick, Joseph Pellizza Volpedo and Medardo Ross. The museum also features works of art by some of the main international artists of the twentieth century such as Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso and Amadeo Modigliani.
Adjacent to the villa is the Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, where the twentieth-century works and the most recent works were moved to.
