The hall 214 is obviously the most prestigious of Hermitage, possessing two canvases of Leonardo: Madonna Benois, also called Madonna with a flower, bought by Hermitage in 1914 and Madonna Litta, one of the main masterpieces of the artist, created in 1490 and bought in Milán for the princes Litta. The hall 221 is completely dedicated to Tiziano. There is where you can see Dánae, there is a copy in Nápoles, Viena and Madrid. The hall 222 is completely dedicated to Veronese. The hall 229 preserves two main masterpieces of Raphael: Madonna Conestabile and the Holy Family. Caravaggio, Tintotetto, Canaletto, Velázquez, Murillo, Goya and many other names.
