Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum is an art gallery near the Prado Museum in Madrid. It is known as a part of the "Golden Triangle of Art", which also includes the Prado Museum and the Reina Sofia galleries.

The Thyssen-Bornemisza fills the historical gaps in its counterparts' collections: in the Prado's case this includes Italian primitives and works from the English, Dutch and German schools. The Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, the second largest private collection in the World after the one of the Queen of Great Britain, includes impressionists, expressionists, European and American paintings from the second half of the 20th century, with over 1,600 paintings..

The collection

One of the focal points is the early European painting, with a major collection of trecento and quattrocento (i.e. 14th and 15th century) Italian paintings by Duccio, and his contemporaries, and works of the early Flemish and Dutch painters like Jan Van Eyck, Albrecht Dürer, and Hans Holbein. Other highlights include works by the most famous Renaissance and Baroque painters, including Titian, Sebastiano del Piombo, Caravaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, Murillo, Rembrandt and Frans Hals and wonderful portraits by Domenico Ghirlandaio and Vittore Carpaccio. Also important for the Museum's collection are Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works by artists like Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas and Vincent Van Gogh, as well as twentieth century masterpieces like a Cubist work by Picasso or late works by Piet Mondrian and Edward Hopper.

A collection of works from the museum are housed in Barcelona in the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya.

In July and August don't miss the rooftop restaurant and bar of the Museum: El Mirador
