Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum vs Reina Sofía Museum

I am planning my first visit to Madrid and as usual I have to leave many of the places I had originally planned to visit for future occasions. Unfortunately I only have four days.

Some places, such as the Prado Museum or the Royal Palace, I have already decided, but if you had to choose between the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofia Museum, with which of the two do you stay?

Re #1: Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum vs Reina Sofía Museum

Yo te diría que el Museo Reina Sofía. El Guernica de Picasso es un cuadro que merece verse una vez en la vida. Estoy seguro que no te defraudará.



La colección del Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza es muy completa, sin lugar a dudas es la mejor pinacoteca privada del mundo, pero para mí ninguno de sus cuadros transmite lo que me transmitió el Guernica de Pablo Picasso.


Re #2: Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum vs Reina Sofía Museum

Hola Julia, la duda que planteas es difícil de responder.

Son dos museos que no se pueden comparar, porque de entrada contienen colecciones de arte totalmente diferentes. La colección del Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza es espectacular, pero desde mi humilde opinión ninguna de sus obras puede superar en importancia al Guernica de Picasso que se expone en el Museo Reina Sofia.
 
Las obras que se exponen en el Museo Reina Sofia corresponden sobre todo a arte moderno del siglo XX. Las obras que se exponen en el Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, en cierta manera se corresponden más con las que puedes ver en el Museo del Prado, con la diferencia de que este último se centra en la pintura italiana del Renacimiento y en obras de pintores españoles de todos los periodos, mientras que en el Thyssen-Bornemisza puedes encontrar obras de  Rubens, Rembrandt, Degas, Manet, Vincent van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, además de algunas obras de El Greco, Caravaggio, Salvador Dalí o Pablo Picasso.
 
Espero haberte aclarado alguna cosa, pero la decisión final depende de tus gustos. Cualquiera de los dos que escojas es una buena opción.



Saludos.
