Why You Shouldn't Miss This
With more than 1,600 paintings on display, Madrid's Thyssen-Bornemisza museum houses the second largest private collections in the world. It is the second biggest after the British Royal Collection. Interestingly it is part of the 'Golden Triangle of Art', an area in Madrid which includes the Prado and Reina Sofia in its vicinity.
The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum offers visitors an overview of art from the 13th century to the late 20th century. In the nearly one thousand works on display, visitors can contemplate the major periods and pictorial schools of western art such as the Renaissance, Mannerism, the Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism and the art of the 19th and 20th centuries up to Pop Art. The museum also features works from some movements not represented in state-owned collections, such as Impressionism, Fauvism, German Expressionism and the experimental avant-garde movements of the early 20th century. In addition, it boasts an important collection of 19th-century American painting not found in any other European museum institutions.
