The collections of the Pinacoteca di Brera became so rich and numerous that the museum guards portraits, self-portraits and works like the Marriage of the Virgin by Raphael, the Virgin with Child by Giovanni Bellini and the Crucifixion by Bramantino.
When Milan became the capital city of the Italian Reign (1805) the Pinacoteca received the most important paintings confiscated in the churches of the region that the army of Napoleon conquered. Brera received in fact works of art from the regions of Veneto, Emilia Romagna and Marche. To solve the problem of the clear absence of paintings by Leonardo and Raphael, 23 paintings were took away from the “Quadreria Arcivescovile” of Milan and thanks to an agreement with the Louvre Museum, five paintings by Rubens, Joardens, Van Dyck and Rembrandt representing the Flemish School of the 17 century came to Brera.  In the same years a lot of frescos by Bernardino Luini, Gaudenzio Ferrari, Vincenzo Foppa, Bergognone and Bramantino came to Brera from the churches of Milan and its region. As a result, Brera had the biggest collection of this genre.
After the Restoration (1815) Brera’s collections grew slower but steadily thanks to donations, gifts and acquisitions (one of this is the Lamentation of Christ by Mantegna, bought from the successors of Giuseppe Bossi in 1824 and the Madonna of the Rose Garden by Luini, arrived at Brera in 1826). In 1882 the Pinacoteca, so as the Galleries of Venice and Boulogne, became independent from the Academy of Fine Arts, which received a big part of the paintings of 19th century.
