Two of the best museums in Madrid (or anywhere, for that matter) are the Museo del Prado and Thyssen-Bornemisza. Let’s check out what’s going on at these legendary institutions.
Museo del Prado recently completed a $208 million expansion. The biggest exhibition right now is called “Among Gods and Men: Classical Sculpture from the Albertinum in Dresden and the Museo del Prado.” It features 46 classical sculptures from the Dresden Museum (for the first time ever). Other upcoming exhibits include a Francis Bacon retrospective, a Victorian painting survey and a special show of murals by Sorolla. For more information, click here.
The Thyssen-Bornemisza also recently expanded and is now twice its original size. Ongoing and upcoming exhibitions include “The Shadow” – a depiction of shadows in art throughout history – as well as a major Matisse retrospective that runs from June 9th to September 20th.
