Temporary exhibitions

A journey through the history of art from the 13th to the 20th century.

With close to a thousand works in the exhibition, visitors can admire the major schools and periods of western art, from the Renaissance through Mannerism, Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism and the art of the 19th and 20th centuries to Pop Art.

The collection also includes some movements that are not as represented in collections at other state museums such as Impressionism, Fauvism, German Expressionism and Avant-garde experimentalists from the early 20th century. It also displays its important collection of 19th-century American painting which is unique among European museums. Some of the masters that can be seen include Durero, Rafael, Tiziano, Rubens, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Manet, Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Kandinsky, Picasso, Hopper and Rothko.

The private collection was created by Baron Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza and his son. Since 2004, 200 works from the collection of Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza have been added, which complete the styles and genres currently in the museum. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum also has a programme of temporary exhibitions, educational activities, courses and workshops for all audiences.
