It has an outstanding collection of paintings, with works by the great masters.
The pieces in the museum were brought together by José Lázaro Galdiano, a passionate collector. The collection comprises more than 12,600 paintings, sculptures, silver items, jewels, enamelled and marble items, fabrics, arms… from the 6th century B.C. to the early 20th century. The different European schools are represented in the art gallery, with works by Hieronymus Bosch, Cranach, Reynolds and Constable, amongst others. The core, however, is the Spanish section, with Gothic and Renaissance panels, and works by El Greco, Ribera, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Murillo, Carreño, etc., and an important set of Goya paintings.
The Lázaro Galdiano presents this initiative that takes a fresh look at the contents of its collection by setting up a series of dialogues between the works themselves and several contemporary Spanish artists.More info
