The ground floor of the museum houses a fine international collection of paintings from the Middle Ages up to the 20th century. It contains paintings by El Greco, Rubens, Tiepolo, Van de Velde, Tiziano, Zurbarán, and Goya, among others.



Nineteenth century French painting is thoroughly represented, with works by Corot, Manet, Boudin, Cézanne, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rodin, Degas, and others. There are also works by 19th century and early 20th century Spanish artists, including Ramón Casas, Ignacio Zuloaga and Pablo Picasso.

There are is an outstanding collection of sculptures, one of the most beautiful and important of which is one of the few copies of Rodin´s “The kiss” that exist around the world (picture above).
