PRADO

This museum is among the best known in the world. It has an art collection with work from the XIIth to the XIXth century.

From Romanic and Gothic art to the early and high renaissance, the Prado collection has unparalleled works that are highlights of the Spanish and World history.

Think of masterpieces by Rogier van der Weyden, Jheronimus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Dürer and Pieter Paul Rubens.

Moreover, it is the place to become acquainted with the Spanish masters in painting. El Greco, Diego de Velázquez and Francisco Goya each have fascinating life stories with which we can also learn to recognize different styles such as Mannerism, Baroque and Neoclassicism.

All this is complete with Italian Renaissance painters such as Raphael, Titian and Tintoretto who, apart from their brilliant work, offered a lot of inspiration to the Spanish painters.

Reina Sofía

In 1992, to celebrate 500 years discovery of the America’s, Madrid opens the National Center for the Arts Reina Sofia (Queen Sofia). It is a place to exhibit Spains modern and contemporary art.

The former General Hospital of the city serves for the location of the collection that contains art from the mid-XIXth century to the present. The turning point to impressionism, new media such as photography and film, as well as political change has led to a undeniable new development within the fine arts.

The museum does a great job in exhibiting this transition until today. It provides an understanding of the country at the end of the XIXth century through its Black Spain vs White Spain art and also houses masterpieces like e.g. Guernica by Pablo Picasso and The Great Masturbator by Salvador Dalí. Works that are indispensable from the XXth century.

Thyssen

The unique collection of Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza is an incredible asset to an already rich art collection Madrid has to offer. It contains art styles from Gothic to Pop Art and has the perfect dose of all the styles in between.

A uniquely specific collection of American art from the XIXth century gives an amazing insight of the wonderful landscapes that inspired so many people to migrate. Next to this, paintings of indigenous people show a world about to disappear.

Specific work by well-known and less well-known artists from the Netherlands, France and United States are well worth seeing and a true addition to the collections of the Prado and Reina Sofia museums.

You can expect work by big international names such as Caravaggio, Canaletto, Frans Hals, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Manet, Gauguin, Hopper, Mondriaan, Rothko and Lichtenstein. Together they provide an unparalleled overview of art.
