Accademia Gallery

Local nameGalleria dell'Accademia
LocationFlorence, Italy

This gallery was founded in 1784 and holds Michelangelo's masterpiece - the statue of David. Apart from this famous sculpture, it holds other artworks by Michelangelo and a collection of Renaissance paintings.

The marble statue of the Biblical hero David was created between 1501 and 1504 and originally located on the square in front of the Palazzo della Signoria. To protect it from damage, it was moved to the gallery in 1873 and a replica of the statue was erected on the square.

The gallery also displays some of Michelangelo's unfinished work - four Prisoners and a statue of Saint Matthew. Other artists include Paolo Uccello, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Sandro Botticelli and Andrea del Sarto. A collection of Russian icons gathered by the House of Lorraine can be also found here.
