After Cont Giovanni Querini's death, Fondazione Querini further enriched the collection owing to its purchases as well as private donations.

Besides, toward the end of the Nineteenth century, Fondazione Querini promoted several art awards thus increasing the collection with works such as Scrittoio by Valentino Panciera Besarel and Daniele Manin e Nicolò Tommaseo liberati dal carcere e portati in trionfo in Piazza San Marco by Napoleone Nani,  (from 22 March 2012 temporarily entrusted to the Sale Apollinee of La Fenice Theatre in Venice).

In 1909 and in 1910, during the International Art Exhibitions in Venice, Fondazione Querini bought a dozen of works of art, amoung which In porto by Guglielmo Ciardi and La modella by Alessandro Milesi.

In 1947, Head of a Child by Medardo Rosso was included in the Museum's collection.

In 1989, Venetian painter Eugenio Da Venezia donated to Fondazione Querini many of his pieces of art in order to help promote artists who used to work in Venice in the Twenties and Thirties.Throughout the years, the Fund has continued to be enriched through donations from the artist's relative and other private Venetian collectors.

In 1992, through donations from artists and devoted collectors, a fund was created in memory of Giuseppe Mazzariol, Foundazione Querini Stampalia's President from 1958 to 1974.

The Museum's rooms have been enriched by Renato Padoan's donation consisting in a collection of decorative art pieces belonging to the famous antique workshop in Venice, “Giuseppe Dominici”. Therefore, visitors can admire pieces of china dated back to the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as pieces of silver, enamel and glass.

Supporting the idea that the viewpoint of sensitive artists can help us better understand the times in which we are living as well as reflect on the past from a different perspective, Fondazione Querini Stampalia decided to involve relevant artist from the contemporary art panorama, inviting them to give their contribution to the historic Palace. Therefore, artists such as Joseph Kosuth, Elisabetta Di Maggio, Remo Salvadori, Stefano Arienti, Maria Morganti and Mariateresa Sartori donated their works to Fondazione Querini.
