  • General Information

    The opening of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in 1990 led to the creation of a museum of modern and contemporary art in Spain at an international level, although there have been few avatars suffered by the building until this end. In the permanent collection of the museum there is a nucleus of works by great Spanish artists of the 20th century, especially Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró, widely represented and with some of his best works.

    The Collection

    Collection 1: The Irruption of the 20th Century: Utopias and Conflicts (1900-1945)

    • The Collection of Museo Reina Sofía starts with the end of the 19th Century, addressing the conflicts between a dominant Modernity, understood as progress, and its multiple discontents, as an ideology under constant challenge both in the social and the political fronts, and the cultural and artistic ones. The avant-garde, in its reinvention of the subject, of the public and of the art world, becomes the symptom of the new 20th Century.

    Collection 2: Is the War Over? Art in a Divided World (1945-1968)

    • On the fourth floor, the Collection covers the artistic transformations occurring in the post-war period, during the development of the tension-ridden international geopolitical scenario involving two different worlds and two antagonistic systems, the United States and the Soviet Union.

    Collection 3: From Revolt to Postmodernity (1962-1982)

    • The period from the 1960s to the 1980s, the years that the new rooms in the Collection explore, is when the political, social, cultural and technological changes that would give shape to the contemporary global situation took place.

    Picasso

    The exhibition Pity and Terror in Picasso, opening at the Museo Reina Sofía in April 2017, 80 years after Guernica’s first showing, will have the great mural at its heart. It will look again at Picasso’s depiction of modern warfare – war from the air, death from a distance, aimed at the destruction of whole populations – and the special kinds of agony, bewilderment, and terror such warfare brings with it. In particular, the exhibition will focus on the roots of Guernica’s imagery in Picasso’s previous turn, during the years following 1925, toward scenes of frenzied or ecstatic human action, often tinged with danger and sometimes tipping over into outright violence.

    Pity and Terror in Picasso will build on major loans from the Musée Picasso in Paris, Tate Modern, Centre George Pompidou, MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum, the Beyeler Foundation, and elsewhere. It will begin with the still lifes and interiors of 1924-25, chart Picasso’s treatment of monstrosity and violence in the later 1920s and 1930s, take the story beyond Guernica to the doom-laden portraits and interiors done as World War II began, and end with a room dedicated to Picasso’s attempts in the 1950s to return to ‘history painting’ in works like Massacre in Korea and the UNESCO mural, Fall of Icarus.

About Museo Reina Sofía

The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía houses a large collection of national and international art, from the late nineteenth century to the present day. Guernica, by Pablo Picasso, is the nucleus of a collection of works by the artist, and other prominent figures such as Maria Blanchard, Louise Bourgeois, Georges Braque, Marcel Broodthaers, Trisha Brown, Alexander Calder, Salvador Dalí, Robert And Sonia Delaunay, Esther Ferrer, Juan Gris, Yves Klein, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Antoni Muntadas, Gerhard Richter, Richard Serra and Mira Schendel, among others.

The museum has three locations: the main one, an old hospital built by the architects Hermosilla and Sabatini, inaugurated as a Museum in 1992 and extended in 2005 by Jean Nouvel; and the Palacios of Velázquez and Cristal in Parque del Retiro.
