The National Gallery of Ancient Art, founded in 1895 by uniting the Corsini and Torlonia Collections, has since 1949 occupied the main and second floors of Palazzo Barberini and collects works from the great masters of Italian and foreign painting from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries.
On the main floor you can see the Madonna and Child by Filippo Lippi, Raphael's La Fornarina, Judith and Holofernes and Narcissus by Caravaggio, Guercino's Et in Arcadia ego, and the Portrait of Henry VIII by Hans Holbein.
In the rooms of the eighteenth century apartment you can admire The Views of Venice by Canaletto, Views of the Roman Countryside and Rome by Gaspare Vanvitelli, The Pastel Portraits by Rosalba Carriera, and Annette at Twenty by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. Paintings from the eighteenth century are also very well represented. They are divided into groups by schools and give a complete and very homogeneous quality panorama of Italian painting of the period, along with the addition of a rare group of French paintings from the eighteenth century.
