Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

Portraits and landscapes in the Art Triangle.

Pay special attention to the portraits and landscapes. Its international authors, absent from the Spanish museum scene since the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza opened in 1992, complement El Prado and the Reina Sofía, the other two centres in the Art Triangle. This private institution reflects the aesthetic tastes of the two barons who amassed such a fortune in paintings, Hans Thyssen-Bornemisza and Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza. Here you'll hardly see virgin or Christs, but nearly a thousand works, including portraits, everyday scenes, still and abstractions which cover the Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism, Impressionism, Fauvism, German Expressionism, American painting of the nineteenth century , experimental avant-garde of the early twentieth century and so on until the days of the Pop Art. Some of the most renowned artists who have a place in the Thyssen are Caravaggio, Rubens, Rothko, Klee, Monet, Van Gogh, Cézanne, Freud, Kandinsky, Bacon, Hopper… A league of champions in the making. This museum collection joins that of Carmen Cervera, which focuses on Spanish art without forgetting the national quota and with a clear supporting axis in which you will lose yourself in remote places and celebrate the explosions of colour.
