The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum invites you on a journey through the world of fashion. Through the paintings in the collection we can see the continual change in the language of fashion and its styles. As we walk through the rooms, we will discover the evolution of clothing: he fabrics, the textures, the colours, the shapes and the attitudes towards the art of dressing.
In addition to being an essential source of nourishment, food is also an object used in cult worship, a sign of wealth, a social ritual and a source of shared pleasure that involves all the senses and feeds the spirit. Given that, as the well known saying has it, “we eat more with our eyes than with our mouths”, the art of cookery, which involves creativity and colour in a way comparable to painting, has enormous visual appeal. As in an alchemist’s laboratory and surrounded by flasks, jars, paintbrushes and spatulas, both the cook and the artist transform their primary materials — saffron, berries, walnut and linseed oil, casein, fish tail, vinegar and egg white — into a creation that marks the transition from nature to culture through the opposition of the raw and the cooked. Through this gastronomic survey the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection aims to satisfy visitors’ appetites, tempting your palate and feasting your eye.
Themes, iconography and figures relating to LGTB culture, sensibility and experience have always been present in art, although often in an almost invisible manner. Maintaining the chronological approach that characterises the display of the museum’s permanent collection, Inclusive Love is a thematic route that runs from Bronzino to Hockney, offering a different gaze in order to focus on concepts such as identity and sexual orientation.
With this chronological tour, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza aims to gives us a closer look at the world of jewellery and allows us to learn about its styles, techniques and uses. Through a selection of works spanning from the 15th to the 20th century, we examine the importance and evolution of the art of jewellery and its relationship with painting.
This route around the Permanent Collection aims to encourage sustainable thinking. The selection of works is based on criteria of aesthetic experience that connect art and sustainable development in terms of ecology, the economy and society.
