19th & 20th century american painting
The Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection is a private collection that arose out of the enormous interest in art always shown by the Baroness Thyssen-Bornemisza. To begin with, Baron Thyssen played an active part, and alongside him the Baroness took her first steps as a collector. Together they collected a large number of works making up the present day private collection of Carmen Thyssen.
The collection focuses mainly on the 19th and 20th centuries and prioritizes three areas: Spanish painting, North American painting and European painting, with outstanding representations of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Expressionism.
