A day for art

Two art galleries done and one to go.

The Prado was first followed by a light lunch and then we visited the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza which is just round the corner.

The Prado is a complete collection covering Spanish, German, French, Flemish, Italian, British and Dutch art. As you might expect the emphasis is on Spanish art and Goya in particular.

The collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza's is perhaps more fascinating partly because it was private and partly because it extends into the 20th Century. Husband and wife had their own very different tastes which shows in their choices.
