"Standing almost opposite the Prado Museum and very near the Reina Sofía Modern Art Museum, this new museum, which architect Rafael Moneo was commissioned to design, was the missing cornerstone that finally sealed the triangle of art. With the presence of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, the most important private collection in the world before it was acquired by the Spanish state in June 1993 for 350 million dollars, few cities can match Madrid’s appeal for art lovers." Here's a link and source for the above.
I love this ~ Quappi in a Pink Jumper by Max Beckmann (1932 -1934), Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid. Quappi was Beckmann's second wife, aka Matilde von Kaulbach (1904-1986). Quappi's hands may look a bit weird, but the overall impression is smashing, especially in person.
