Pinacoteca di Brera Informazioni

Self-Portrait

Andrea Appiani

Brera grew enormously under Appiani, Napoleon’s “first painter” in Milan and Bossi’s successor, with hundreds of works coming from churches suppressed in the regions of northern Italy invaded by the French armies. Four monumental rooms built to house these works, and known since as the “Napoleonic Halls”, opened in 1809. Paintings that are still the pride of the museum as well as monumental altarpieces joined the collection at that time. This was an “imperial” museum designed to highlight the ruler’s power.
