The Modern Art Gallery of Milan (Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Italian) is located in the royal villa of Milan. The museum is at via Palestro 16, in front of the Porta Venezia Park. There is Italian and European artwork from the 18th to the 20th centuries.
Also thanks to several donations by some important families of Milan (for example Treves, Ponti, Grassi and Vismara family), the collection contains masterpieces by Giovanni Fattori, Silvestro Lega, Giovanni Boldini, Vincent van Gogh, Édouard Manet, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Francesco Hayez, Giovanni Segantini, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo and Antonio Canova.
In the last few years some artwork was moved to the Museum of Twentieth Century. The paintings Bambina che corre sul balcone by Giacomo Balla (1912), Uomo che dorme by Renato Guttuso (1938) and The Fourth Estate by Pellizza da Volpedo (1901) were moved.
The royal villa was constructed between 1790 and 1796 by Leopoldo Pollack in neoclassical style and in 1951 was flanked by the Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions, located in via Palestro 14 next to the Modern Art Gallery.
