The collection contains a large number of pieces from the remotest regions of both civilizations, ranging from the Mediterranean to other places. Find a stool near the fountain and sit beside the statue of the three graces representing the true, the good and the beautiful. Immerse yourself in the culture of ancient Greece and Rome.
For Asian art collections, visitors should give themselves at least half an hour to enjoy the rich collection. Start with 14th-century Chinese frescoes that rise to 7.5 meters in height, then explore galleries devoted to south and southeast Asian collections. Don’t miss the small gallery on the mezzanine, which also has a wealth of treasures. These galleries are smaller. Here, you can quietly admire the Buddha’s portrait and experience the development and evolution of many Asian cultures over thousands of years.
There is a treasure house of impressionism, full of impressionist works by familiar masters, such as monet, degas, Cezanne and Picasso. Gallery 825 has 10 works by Vincent van Gogh, and gallery 822 next door has seven more. In his early work, van gogh painted rural life in sombre tones, focusing on the harsh, true character of his subjects. Later, after spending two years in Paris and seeing impressionist and neo-impressionist paintings, his work experienced a turning point that led him to lighter colors and unadorned brushwork. They became his trademark.
