Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza : Michelin's recommendations
The neo-classical Palace of Villahermosa, which was specially converted by the architect Rafel Moneo, houses this fabulous collection, gifted to Spain, the native land of his wife Carmen Cervera, by Hans Thyssen-Bornemisza. It is probably the world's most extraordinary private collection of paintings, brought together by the baron's family from the 1920s onwards. The 800 pictures form a remarkable journey through Western art, from the 13C to the present day, which art lovers should not miss on any account! The next extension of the museum, thanks to the acquisition of two adjoining buildings, should not change the deliberately chronological principle of presentation of the works on display. So a stroll takes you from Duccio di Buoninsegna, the Italian primitive, to Roy Lichtenstein, taking in on the way Van Eyck, Memling, Dürer, Caravaggio, Ribera, El Greco, Zurbaran, Van Dyck, Frans Hals, Constable, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Braque, Kandinsky, Rothko and Pollock to name but a few of the prestigious highlights awaiting you! A museum to savour at length.
