The Reina Museum Modern Art Centre is a sort of MOMA of Madrid. It was rebuilt at the site of an old hospital dating from 1788. Converted into the Modern Art Museum Madrid in 1990. In 2005 was inaugurated the spectacular Extension of the museum, built by Jean Nouvel. To the former hospital, 3 spectacular glass and steel elevator towers were added, designed by Ian Ritchie and Ove Arup & partners. In the courtyard of the Jean Nouvel building, a brush-stroke Roy Lichtenstein sculpture stands out proudly.
Reina Sofia Museum Collection has some 30,000 works of contemporary abstract art. Apart of classic paintings by notorious contemporary abstract artists there are exhibited valuable sculptures, photographs and movies.
Irina Karasenko private tour begins with a meticulous analysis of famous Gernika by Picasso and continues with a selection of excellent Spanish expressionist painters, including Dalí, Miró and other relevant surrealist painters, of course also the cubism of Picasso and Juan Gris and ends with the most conspicuous painters of the second half of the 20th century such as Guerrero, Millares, Saura, Palazuelo, Arroyo and many more.
This private tour entertainingly explains the genius of the different Spanish painters through the modern era and the works they created in an environment of many political and social conflicts. The warm atmosphere achieved by the architects responsible for the inauguration of the Reina Sofía, so conducive to a pleasant stroll through the different installations, gives our tour a pleasant feeling of maximum artistic enjoyment.
Of course, our well-documented explanation of famous Gernika by Picasso is the main attraction of the tour, but the diversity and extent of the exhibited works facilitate an optimal adaptation to the tastes, needs and desires of our customers.
