CloudGuide is proud to introduce you to the latest addition to our app, the incredibleMuseo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, situated on Madrid’s bustling Paseo del Prado Boulevard! The prestigious institution is home to one of the most prominent private collections of paintings of the twentieth century. Featuring masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso and other masters of painting, the museum’s established showcase is a delight for visitors to revel in.

The fascinating assembly unveils some of the most prominent works of western art, spanning from the thirteenth century to the twentieth century. With almost one thousand works on display nestled in the historic Villahermosa Palace, visitors can relish in the Renaissance, discoverMannerism, pause in theBaroque, linger through Rococo and follow the path of Romanticism to finally behold thenineteenth and twentieth century art movements. The museum has always been highly appreciated for its awareness of Impressionism, Fauvism, and nineteenth century American painting as these works could rarely be found in state-owned collections.

The Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, together with its principal creators Baron Heinrich and his son Hans Heinrich, found home in Italy during the turbulent politics of interwar Europe. When in 1992, Hans Heinrich decided to transfer his vast collection from the crowded gallery of Villa Favorita in Lugano, it marked the largest move of works of art in history. The new museum, nestled in the historic Villahermosa Palace wasinaugurated in 1992by the King and Queen of Spain. Following the huge success of the museum only a year after its opening, more than 775 works of art had been acquired by the Spanish public.
