Madrid already had the The Prado and the Sofia, and somehow the Thyssen had to make a name for it among these incredibly popular competitor galleries. How did it do that? Well:

  • With an intense focus on impressionistic and post impressionistic work.
  • A clever chronological procession of paintings that let viewers almost literally strolls through history.
  • Paintings that are superbly curated – only the masters of the masters are displayed here.
  • A tranquil atmosphere where the silence lets the art speak and allows you to hear – unlike the Prado and the Sofia.
  • An incredibly compact layout that allows a great number of precious artwork to be crammed into a very small space.
  • A beautiful building of warm and inviting hues.

Other collections here include Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo, 14th and 15th century recento and quattrocento, and Flemish and Dutch painters.

It’s only when you’re leaving that you realise that you’ve been well and thoroughly enchanted. The museum doesn’t show you everything you need to know about European painting, but it shows you a lot of what really matters.
