The Palatine Gallery, housed in the historic Palazzo Pitti, showcases a series of masterpieces by 16th and 17th-century artists including such luminaries as Raphael (11 of his most famous works), Raffaello, Titian, Caravaggio, Rubens and Pietro da Cortona.
The gallery brings together the private collections of the entire Medici family and was arranged between the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries. Astonishingly by modern standards, these paintings are arrayed without an eye for chronology, theme or even authorship - the intention is purely decorative and the shape of frames was a decisive factor in deciding which paintings went on which walls.
