Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art

The Allen Memorial Art Museum’s collection of Italian Renaissance and Baroque art, which comprises important paintings, sculptures and drawings, is particularly strong.  The collection benefited from the donation of ten paintings from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, and was additionally formed by many judicious acquisitions.
