Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum (Madrid, Spain)

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum provides visitors with a journey through the history of painting, from 13th-century Italian Gothic, to Abstract and Figurative art from the 1980s. It is a seamless overview of the Great Masters and practically all the modern Avant-garde movements, from Impressionism to Pop Art. This is an unusually broad range for a European  museum.

 In a clear, well-organized chronological order, visitors can view over one thousand artworks that include the Great Masters of each period. From Duccio to Liechstein, via Dürer, Van Eyck, Caravaggio, Rubens, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, Manet, Van Gogh, Matisse, Goya, Picasso and Dalí


Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

 The Thyssen Museum is one of the finest private collections in the world, although it is actually managed by a state-run Foundation. Over various generations, the family has collected a large number of works which are currently on display in the museum’s rooms. The Spanish architect Rafael Moneo refurbished and adapted the early 19th-century Villahermosa Palace for this purpose. They say that this museum is the perfect complement to the nearby Prado and Reina Sofia museums, and that it fills in the gaps in their collections.
