Thyssen Bornemisza Museum Madrid

Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid

Almost across the Prado Museum and very close to the National Art Centre Reina Sofía you will find the new Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. The museum was renovated by Rafael Moneo and represents an essential part of the art triangle en Madrid.

With the presence of the collection Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, the most important private art collection in the world until 1993 when the Spanish state acquired it for 350 million dollars, only a few cities can offer a similar or more attractive offer to any art lover.

One of the most important characteristics of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum is its complementary character with respect to the collections of Prado Museum (antique paintings) and the National Art Centre Reína Sofia (modern paintings). It completes the offer with movements and styles such as the Italian and Dutch “primitive” school, German renaissance, Dutch paintings from the 17th century, impressionism, German expressionism, Russian constructivism, geometric abstraction and pop. And what is more, it dedicates two rooms to paintings from North America from the 21st century, mostly unknown in Europe.
