Tosio Martinengo Art Gallery

Palazzo Martinengo da Barco, the historical seat of the Pinacoteca, reveals the sumptuous beauty of its long history that has its roots in the 16th century until the end of the 19th century, with the architectural renewal of Antonio Tagliaferri. Donated to the city by Count Leopardo Martinengo da Barco, since 1908 the building has housed the civic collections, formed thanks to the generous gift of Count Paolo Tosio and enriched over time through numerous acquisitions.

In a historical journey, which combines paintings with admirable works of decorative art, we start from the fourteenth century and, passing through testimonies of absolute fame such as the Blessing Christ and the Angel by Raffello Sanzio, we discover the richness of Brescia painting of the sixteenth century , with paintings by Vincenzo Foppa, Moretto, Romanino and Savoldo, reaching the very human season of Giacomo Ceruti with his beggars and concluding with the great commissions of Francesco Martinengo da Barco, Camillo Brozzoni and Paolo Tosio, including two monumental canvases by Francesco Hayez is a sculpture by Canova.
