Culture-oriented trip to Madrid - The Tyssen-Bornemisza Museum's collection - The first Floor galleries - The 19th of August 2016


I walked down onto the first floor galleries where I came across several paintings by some of my favourite painters. I was unfortunately not able to photograph both Van Gogh's on display because of light problems, but I did manage to photograph those by Chagall, Pissarro, Picasso, Modigliani, Césanne, Gauguin and Lucien Freud amongst others.
