The Spanish State bought in 1993 the most important works in this collection of the family Thyssen-Bornemisza. The pleasant to the museum is the routing. You start on the second floor with the Italian primitives and ends on the ground floor with Dada and Pop Art and then as the museum directory have rightly says 700 years painting of the highest level. Highlight for me: a self-portrait of Rembrandt. Because the museum is not too large, it is good to view at one time, that is, the permanent collection.
Itinerario de Max Beckman, muy interesante y muy bien escogida la obra presentada.- Una selección minuciosa desde sus principios hasta sus últimos lienzos more »Route of Max Beckman, very interesting and very well chosen the presented work.-a careful selection from its beginnings until his recent paintings
A very cozy, relaxing, interesting and well organized gallery. You'll find paintings from Italian Renaissance to XX Century with some statues too (a bronze by Giacometti). All great pieces are commented by an outstanding audio guide. The cafeteria and the gift shop are a nice experience too. Not to miss at all, even if it's very close to Prado.
One of loveliest collections anywhere, amazing range, something for everyone! Go go go! And nicely laid out in restful galleries, not TOO many people, enough benches for my weary back. I always discover, or rediscover, something special when I go. And on my most recent trip it was free to get in!
