The collection of the museum has five sections: Asian art; contemporary art, with works by Salvador Dalì, Damien Hirst, Albert Louden, Mario Schifano and Frances Turner; drawings, with work by Luca Giordano, Guercino, Magritte, Munch, Tiepolo and Veronese; etchings, including works by Dürer, Goya, Piranesi and Rembrandt; and a historical section containing portraits[5] and an icon given by Pope Pius XII to Princess Margaret in 1949.[3]
