The “Giuseppe De Nittis” Art Gallery is located in the historic center of the city of Barletta, in the province of Trani. The Pinacoteca is housed in the prestigious Palazzo della Marra. The Pinacoteca is dedicated to the painter Giuseppe De Nittis and exhibits a rich collection of paintings dedicated to the artist. The collection consists of 146 paintings, 65 drawings of different types together with books and an epistolary. The collection is the result of the collection of works donated to the city by De Nittis' wife Léontine Gruvelle. In 2017, the legacy of Léontine Gruvelle was the subject of a new display. The renewed exhibition itinerary arises from the critical and scientific reading of the works by the curator Christine Farese Sperke. The exhibition, illustrated in the general catalog "Giuseppe De Nittis, Barletta, Palazzo della Marra", is organized on two levels and consists of large sections: the theme of "Landscape", the great themes of "Racing" and "Worldly life ", The novelty of" Japanism ", the intimacy of" Affections ". The exhibition recounts further unpublished aspects of De Nittis' modernity such as the so-called “Incomplete Paintings” and the “Graphic Collection”, etchings, aquatints, dry tips. Among the most important works we find: Breakfast in the garden, the self-portrait, the races in Auteuil, the living room of Princess Matilde, Yes femmes parisiennes, Carreras en Longchamps and Neapolitan Lady. Today the Pinacoteca hosts temporary exhibitions and cultural events.
