Masterpieces from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

Paintings displayed at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum span more than 700 years of the history of art and include some of the most famous masterpieces in the world.

The museum offers visitors an overview of art from the 13th to the late 20th century. In the nearly one thousand works on display, visitors can contemplate the major periods and pictorial schools of western art such as the Renaissance, Mannerism, the Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism and the art of the 19th and 20th centuries up to Pop Art. The museum also features works from some movements not represented in state-owned collections, such as Impressionism, Fauvism, German Expressionism and the experimental avant-garde movements of the early 20th century. In addition, it boasts an important collection of 19th-century American painting not found in any other European museum institutions.
