The museum boasts a magnificent collection of old masters, representing all the major European schools of painting. It features works by Rafael, Giorgione and Bronzino. Titian's "Portrait of Doge Marcantonio" and Pieter Bruegel's "St John the Baptist Preaching", works of Hans Holbein and Lucas Cranach the Elder as well as masterpieces of unsurpassable Spanish masters - El Greco, Velasquez, Zurbaran, Goya and Esteban Murillo.

The collection represents also various directions of the early 20th century modernism and offers a glimpse into the mid-20th century trends in art.
