It starts from the sixteenth and the seventeenth century, from the great representatives of Veneto, Lombardy and Emilia: Titian, Lotto, Bassano, Tintoretto, Savoldo, Caravaggio, Correggio, Carracci, to approach the Flemish such as Rubens or Elsheimer or De La Tour in France, El Greco and Zurbaran in Spain, the Dutch masters such as Rembrandt and Van Honthorst, and the painters of the eighteenth century , from Magnasco to Füssli, to the pre-romantics such as Wright of Derby, to Canaletto and Guardi. Then the American painting, with a particular eye to the wonders of Church and so on up to Hopper.

He will be honoured with a special tribute: 10 "museum" works, made available by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, namely the two temples of the art of Vincent. His famous "Country Road in Provence by Night" was not surprisingly chosen as the logo of the exhibition.

But the path created by Goldin sights also Van Gogh and the nineteenth century and, through the excitement of Böcklin, leads the show into the new century to meet Matisse and then Bonnard, experiencing many incursions into the work of some sensational painters of the mid twentieth century, for example De Staël, Rothko, or Bacon, closing with the Spaniard Lopez Garcia and an extraordinary American painter, who died in 2009, Andrew Wyeth.
