Amazing Artwork in Madrid, Spain
We had the chance to go to three art museums while vacationing in Madrid, Spain. The Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. So far, the best artwork I have ever seen in person was in Spain.
Free Admission to Art Museums in Madrid
The Prado museum is free every day from 6 pm until 8 pm from Monday to Saturday and from 5 pm until 8 pm every Sunday.
The Reina Sofia museum is free on Sunday mornings from 10 am – 2:30 pm and on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 7 pm to 9 pm.
I believe all of the art in the post are in the Reina Sofia. The Museo Reina Sofía Collection comprises more than 21,000 works. I don’t think we were able to take any photos in the other museums.
These first two paintings are Salvador Dali’s. Dali is best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. I have to say the name of that first painting almost ruined it for me.
This one is obviously a Pablo Picasso. This one is Picassso’s Guernica.
I do not remember who painted this. Can you see the people inside through the window and the person outside of the window to the side. I think my camera had a hard time figuring out where to focus, you can see why.
