A historic venue of the Academy of Arts displays the collection of the 15th - 20th century Spanish, Italian and Flemish art: Rubens, Correggio, Zurbaran, El Greco, Velasquez, Murillo, Ribera, Gris and Goya. Contextually, the most interesting canvases seem belonging to hand of José de Ribera, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo and Zurbaran, while the brightest and the most widely represented is Goya - a formed director of the Academy. The most impressive and picturesque are "Casa de Locos" („The House of the Mad") - one of the most skillful depictions of insanity, and a tragicomic „A Procession of Flagellants ". Yet no trace of the former students Dalí and Picasso, perhaps because both of them dropped out before graduating - Picasso decided to desert his studies but Dalí was expelled.
