Madrid Spain Art
Today, as a precaution, I am in Madrid, the capital of Spain, home to some of the most famous art galleries in the world.
The three art museums of the Golden Triangle are located in the heart of Madrid, the capital of Spain, just outside the city centre. They form the "Golden Triangle of Art" of Madrid and include the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), the Museo de Arte Moderno (Museum of Modern Art) and the Art Institute of Barcelona.
The Prado Thyssen - Bornemisza and Sophia Reina are among the most important works of modern art in Spain and the world. There is even a "Golden Triangle of Art" that includes the Museo de Arte Moderno, the Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCA and the Art Institute of Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain. The ThySSen and Born Artemisza museums are located on the second and third floors respectively in the centre of Madrid, next to the National Museum.
The Museo del Prado attracts more visitors than any other museum in Spain because it has one of the largest collections of modern and contemporary art in the world. The museum's art collection is based on the former Royal Collection of Spain. Other notable galleries in Madrid include the Museum de Arte Moderno, widely considered to be home to some of Spain's most important 19th and 20th century works of art, and the National Museum of Contemporary Art.
The gallery is packed with works by 20th century masters, including Picasso, Matisse, Monet, Gauguin, Gertrude Stein and Guggenheim, to name a few. Next, the Museum de Arte Moderno and the National Museum of Contemporary Art offer a complementary contrast to the Prado. The collection of works of art from the late 19th and mid-20th centuries has been brought to the fore and is inspired by the great figures of the Spanish sculptor Parnassus, for whom Velazquez is positioned in the gallery, inspired not only by his own work but also by the works of other artists such as Giorgio Morandi, Pablo Picassa, Salvador Dali and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Picassi alone with his Guernica is one of the most famous works of art in Spain and a great example of modern art in Spain.
The Prado Thyssen - Bornemisza is within a 10-minute walk and there is a metro station on the right that will take you to the airport or other places in Madrid for 2 euros. If you are travelling to Trafalgar Best in Spain or northern Spain, you should visit the Prados Museum. If you want to visit the National Museum of Contemporary Art or the Museum de Arte Moderno in Madrid, you can buy tickets for one of the galleries for the same price.
The Spanish capital is known for its architecture and history, but you should prefer a wider route through Madrid. Even if you are not an art lover, you will love Madrid for its art, and I would certainly mention street art, which is best represented in Madrid by graffiti writers. Since my novel Oil on Marble is both art and historical fiction, and has recently been translated into Spanish, many fans have asked me what art they can see when travelling between Madrid, Barcelona and everywhere in between. To help you, the focus of my Madrid diary is on the work and life of the native Spanish artists.
ME Madrid is an art centre that is currently hosting an exhibition for women, where 10 male and 10 female artists present their works.
It is undoubtedly the best museum for art lovers in Madrid and is widely considered one of the largest permanent art collections in the world, based on the former Royal Collection of Spain, dating from the 12th century to the early 20th century. The world of the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso - the famous Guernica - will find its place, as will a number of contemporary works of the 20th century, including some of his works. The 91,435 by 42.40 meter collection is probably the most important collection of contemporary Spanish art in Spain and has a large permanent art collection, composed mainly of contemporaries of Spanish art.
The Prado contains about 7,800 paintings (ISBN) listed by the ISBN, and about 5,000 in private collections. See also: Madrid Art Museum, Madrid, Spain: Art in Madrid and the Madrid Museum of Modern Art.
There is a huge amount of art to see in Spain and I hope that these art highlights inspire art lovers to consider visiting Madrid. Don't let this list restrict you, your trip to Spain will be full of great art, great food and great people, so don't let this list restrict you.
This art guide in Spain will show you some of my favorite experiences that art lovers should not miss. Simply known as El Prado, it is one of the most famous museums in the world and the largest art museum in Europe. The Reina Sofia Museum may be home to the most famous art in Spain, but it's not all over.
