Photos of my trip to Madrid (3): Reina Sofia Museum

I was in Madrid from February 23 to March 02, 2022. I immortalized hundreds of photos for you, my dear friends and visitors. I will publish them in articles for 6 days. I hope you like them.

The Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum is one of the most important museums in Madrid, offering visitors an extensive collection of contemporary Spanish art. Founded in 1992 to cover periods not covered by the Prado Museum, it began to exhibit works dating from 1881, the year of birth of Pablo Picasso. The Reina Sofía Museum was inaugurated in 1992, in a large 18th-century neoclassical-style building that was a former general hospital.

A long line of visitors waiting – in the rain and in front of a modern elevator – to enter the museum

The museum offers the visitor vast collections of paintings by important Spanish painters such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, Francis Picabia, René Magritte, Yves Tanguy, Oscar Dominguez, Juan Gris, Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay, Fernand Léger and Albert Gleizes, Francis Bacon and Antonio Saura.
The museum also presents a wealth of photographic works and films from the 20th century.
