The Thyssen-Bornemisza collection is one of the most important private collections of paintings collected in the 20th century, and the history of its development is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating collections. Although its origin is private, the collection belongs to all Spaniards today, after its acquisition by the State in 1993, only one year after the opening of the Madrid museum. Since 2004, a significant part of the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza collection has been added to this legacy, with over two hundred works in free storage that complete the styles and genres present in the permanent collection.

Durero, Rafael, Tiziano, Rubens, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Manet, Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Kandinsky, Picasso, Hopper, Rothko…  Impress the list of great names of the history of the painting that compose it, and it surprises also that it is the result of only two generations of collecting. All the movements of occidental art go one after another, from the painting of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries to the last decades of the twentieth century, showing the exquisite taste of those who have been its main craftsmen: The barons Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza (1875-1947) and his son Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza (1921-2002).
