Thursday March 24 2011, was inaugurated the Carmen Thyssen Museum Malaga, which can be visited free of charge from Friday 25 to Sunday 27.

The Collection features artists such as Zurbarán, Sorolla, Zuloaga, Romero de Torres, Gomez Gil, Moreno Carbonero and Barron.

In addition to the permanent collection, this year the museum will have three temporary exhibitions:

  • From Picasso to Tàpies“: Spanish Painting of the twentieth century art by artists like Picasso, Torres-Garcia, Cossio, Saura and Tàpies, from April 11 onwards.
