Other paintings of note include Titian's Sacred and Profane Love, Raphael's Entombment of Christ and works by Peter Paul Rubens and Federico Barocci. The collection also features marble sculptures world-known for their perfection as the "Rape of Proserpine", "Apollo and Daphne" and the "David" by Bernini and the sensual "Pauline Bonaparte" by Antonio Canova.
