The collection on display at the National Gallery of Apulia, "Girolamo and Rosaria Devanna", known to critics and art historians, is very heterogeneous for its historical and cultural context. It reflects the interests of collectors, ranging from major art schools to the representatives of "minor schools", from the opening to the Anglo-American culture to the attention of sketches, studies, replicas or copies of ancient works of great painters.

The Italian painting is the largest, in particular the Neapolitan painting and those from Apulia and theRomearea. There are works by artists fromEmilia,Liguria,Veneto,Marche, along with examples of modern European paintings from Bernardo Castello to Belvedere, from Baglioni, Verdier, Voet, Lanfranco to Poussin, from Preti to Beinaschi and Giaquinto, from Raeburn to Füssli.

A recent collection of great interest, consists of sketches, preparatory studies, models, copies and replicas that were discovered from an antique market.

The group of works include paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including French, German, English and Danish, and Italian paintings. They are primarily fromSouthern Italy- Toma De Nittis, Morelli, Casciaro, Netti, Rossano, Fergola, Cammarano, Mancinelli, up to Groan, Giani , Duranti.

In addition, the works of Bernard, De Carolis, Mafai, Sartorio, Marasco, Stella and Wood, document the culture of interest for overseas collectors.
