The Pinacoteca di Brera – Brera Art Gallery, in English – is an art collection in Milan, exhibiting a superior collection of Italian paintings.

The Pinacoteca shares the Palazzo Brera site with the Brera Academy, a public academic institution offering courses of study in painting, sculpture, graphics, photography, video and other creative arts, as well as cultural historical disciplines.

The most famous piece in the collection is perhaps Supper at Emmaus by the Italian master Caravaggio. It is one of two works by the artist on the same subject; the other is in the National Gallery in London.
