The artwork collection that is exhibited in this gallery is admirable and really interesting to look at. However, there exists a very important technical issue in this exhibition, and that is lighting. The lighting of the paintings is so poorly done and it actually affects the perception of the viewer about the piece he/she is looking at. Because pay attention, we are dealing with visual arts here, so, the most important aspect in exhibiting such collections would be viewing them in the best conditions possible visually in which they are closest to what the artist aimed to show and preserving them in that condition. The lighting equipment in my opinion is not a good type for an exhibition, they need to be defused and the color of the light needs to me more neutral. If it wasn't for that, it would be a very pleasant experience I must say.
Big parts of the gallery were closed: half of the ground floor, half of the second floor, and the whole third floor. Not sure if this is because they're hosting a special Da Vinci exhibition (which was actually really nice) or that's a regular thing, since the staff doesn't really speak English.
