The Palatine Gallery – What you need to know
The Palatine Gallery houses one of the most important collections from the late Renaissance and Baroque period. The museum is located in Palazzo Pitti and occupies 19 rooms on the main floor, which are some of the most beautiful in the entire complex.
The paintings are displayed following purely decorative criteria, giving rise to a “collection” type arrangement, certainly very faithful to the original desires of the Granduca Pietro Leopoldo, which enhances the beautiful carved and gilded frames.
Many of the works collected here come from the donation of around 500 paintings made by Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici, and that by Vittoria della Rovere, the wife of the Grand Duke Ferdinand II, which included a large number of paintings by Raffaello and Tiziano.
It was first open to the public in 1833, and its halls contain Renaissance masterpieces, with works by Tiziano, Botticelli, Raffaello, Caravaggio, Van Dyck, Tintoretto, Giorgione, Leonardo, Veronese Rubens and many others.
