Hereditary troubles, beginning in the 1700s, brought to the near complete dispersal of the great collection of the Barberini family and culminated with the State's permission to sell the most significant pieces. It was only in 1984 that the Corsini Collection was brought back to its original site, reinforced by the successive purchases and by works that had been lost from their original sites, giving life to a chronologically organised gallery and open to new acquisitions. Numerous are the masterpieces of the collection, above all from the XIV and XVII centuries, such as the Fornarina by Raphael, artworks by Andrea del Sarto, Beccafumi, Sodoma, Bronzino and Titian (Tiziano) and the splendid Judith Beheading Holofernes by Caravaggio. A particular mention should be made to the important Madonna on Throne with Child by Filippo Lippi. Paintings from the 1700s are also excellently represented and include, besides the Italian artists, a rare collection of French painters from the same period.
