This collection of around 2,000 works of art is situated on the second floor of the Palazzo Pitti. The Macchiaioli, precursors to the French Impressionist movement, the famous Tuscan group of the 19th century, are well represented here, with their pictures in which reality is represented through realistic personal expressions. The subjects of the paintings were principally inspired by nature and everyday life and these are expressed through spots of color and luminary contrasts. At the head of the movement was Giovanni Fattori of whom there are numerous works exhibited, amongst which the Rotonda Palmieri and a whole series of landscapes and representations of Maremma life. The gallery also displays the work of living contemporary artists.
