Visited this nice art museum in Malaga in the beginning of this month.
Palacio de Villalon on Calle Compania is home of
the Carmen Thyssen Museum in Malaga.
The museum was opened in March 2011 and it has a permanent collection of more than 200 works of Spanish artists of the 19th century, centred especially on Andalusian paintings.
The building is a 16th century Renaissance city palace.
The restoration focused on the recovery of its original layout and spaces, combined with newly built areas.
Julio Romero de Torres (Cordoba, 1874-1930) is one of the most renowned Spanish artists of what was known as the fin-de-stecle period and has come to be regarded as the absolute master of Andalusian symbolism.
Had some lunch tapas at the museum bistro.
Tortilla español, sardinas... yummy!
The naturalist landscapes were my favourite ones together with the costumbrismo paintings which gave a great peek to the everyday life of people at the mid 19th century.
Carmen en Malaga
by Mercedes Lasarte
Mercedes Lasarte in the Carmen Thyssen Collection” is an exhibition of works created by Mercedes Lasarte between 1970 and 2011 and kept in the personal collection of baroness Carmen Thyssen. This is the first retrospective dedicated to the Argentine artist, and a hint at the broad scope of the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection.
