Since the death of Count Giovanni Querini, the Querini Foundation has further enriched its collection through purchases as well as private donations.

Toward the end of the nineteenth century, the Foundation initiated 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 March 2012 temporarily entrusted to the Sale Apollinee of La Fenice Theatre in Venice).

At the International Art Exhibition in Venice of 1909 and 1910, the Querini Foundation acquired a dozen works, including In porto by Guglielmo Ciardi and La modella by Alessandro Milesi.

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

In 1989, Venetian painter Eugenio Da Venezia donated many of his works in order to promote artists who were working in Venice in the twenties and thirties. Since then, the Da Venezia Fund has been further enhanced by donations from the artist's relatives and other private Venetian collectors.

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

The Museum's rooms have been embellished through the gift of Renato Padoan's decorative arts collection. Once belonging to the famous Venetian antique shop, “Giuseppe Dominici,” it invites visitors to admire items of china dating back to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, along with examples of silver, enamel and glass.

Recognizing that the viewpoint of sensitive artists can help us better understand the times in which we live as well as shed new light on the past, the Querini Foundation has decided to engage relevant artists from the contemporary art arena, inviting them to connect with the historic palace. Thus, artists such as Joseph Kosuth, Elisabetta Di Maggio, Remo Salvadori, Stefano Arienti, Maria Morganti and Mariateresa Sartori have donated their works.
