Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

I only had time for one museum and Prado’s website was annoying while Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza’s quickly promised some Edward Hopper works. Easy choice and a very enjoyable afternoon followed as I wended my way anti-clockwise around the old and new wings of the museum, housing the Thyssen-Bornemisza and Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza collections, respectively.

Here’s what stood out for me, whoever they belong to:

Jan Lievens
Landscape with the Rest on the Flight into Egypt, c. 1635

Claude Joseph Vernet
Night: a Mediterranean Coast Scene with Fishermen and Boats, 1753

Francesco Guardi
View of Canal Grande with Santa Lucia and Santa Maria di Nazareth, c. 1780

Henri-Edmond Cross
Beach. Evening Effect, 1902

Lyonel Feininger
Lady in Mauve, 1922

Georgia O’Keefe
New York with Moon, 1925

Edward Hopper
Hotel Room, 1931

René Magritte
La clef des champs, 1936
