Art in Madrid’s Mansions 1900-1920s

This walk, an original concept launched in July 2014, is articulated around two mansions that define urban architecture, art, and the creation of private collections in early twentieth-century Madrid.

We start at the Lázaro Galdiano Museum, home of an avid collector whose interests spanned Arabic antiquities and Goya’s works. Mr. Galdiano’s imposing villa holds thousands of artifacts, statues, weapons, textiles, furniture and paintings, including Gothic altarpieces from Northern Europe, a panel by Hieronymus Bosch and canvases by Renaissance, Baroque and Nineteenth-century Spanish and Italian masters. After an in-depth visit to this Museum, we will proceed to the nearby Sorolla Museum, another stunning mansion built in the same period.

The Sorolla Museum holds a much smaller collection of artifacts, since this was the home of the renowned Spanish post-Impressionist painter Joaquín Sorolla, whose paintings can be found in numerous American museums. Visiting his home and workshop offers an opportunity to enter his creative world, as well as an insight into Spanish taste and interior design.

Length: 3 hours. Maximum group size: 7 people.
