On Monday, the group had another Madrid excursion to the Museo de la Reina Sofia. This is another art museum in town. There are three main ones, the Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and the Reina Sofia, and I have now seen all of them.
The Reina Sofia was very pretty and much more modern than the other two. It housed lots of Picasso and Dalí paintings. There were of course more, but those are the two names that I recognized. One of the most famous of those is the Picasso painting Guernica. Of course, though, we were allowed to take pictures throughout the museum except for the rooms with Picasso’s works.
They also had an entire room filled of sketches that he had done in order to practice for the actual painting of Guernica. There also were quite a few paintings by Dalí. They didn’t have the one with all the melting clocks, The Persistence of Memory. I believe that one is somewhere is the US. Overall, pretty cool to see, but I struggled with it only being day two of my cold.
