We have created a three-week course that will be a treasure hunt of some of the greatest galleries in the world including the Prado, the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza. We are very lucky to welcome back one of our favourite lecturers and Spanish expert, Dr. Jacqueline Cockburn. She will pick her top 10 favourite Spanish and international works from three of the major galleries in Madrid, all on Museum Street. She will unravel them, paying particular attention to technique and historical context. We two promises a look at the European Avant Garde from the Thyssen Museum. You are welcome to join us from 10:30 am for a 10:45 start, ending around 12:00 pm.
This course will lead, should you wish to come, to a follow-on trip to Madrid and Toledo later in 2021. This will take us to some of the hidden gems of Madrid, such as the newly-opened Palacio de Liria, with its wonderful collection; The Colnaghi Institute; and Sorolla’s house, as well as a fabulous tour of Medieval Toledo.
