WORKS OF THE THYSSEN-BORNEMISZA MUSEUM TO SEE

Saint Catherine of Alexandria by Caravaggio

Saint Catherine of Alexandria by Caravaggio

The canvas dates back to the period in which Cardinal Francesco Maria del Monte was Caravaggio’s patron: in fact, the painting was part of the Cardinal’s art collection.
The model who posed for Caravaggio was Fillide Melandroni, who gazes out at the viewer, or the artist.
In those years Caravaggio tried to express feelings and emotions in the small gestures, in hand and body movements, in gazes.

Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a second before waking up by Dalì

Even the buzz of a bee was a source of inspiration for Dalì.
Surreal, Freudian, and fascinating. This painting is the unconscious that sets free on the canvas, where an element external to sleep inserts in the dream: the bee sting which is represented by a bayonet that punches a hole in the woman’s arm.
The pain is similar to tigers coming out a fish that in turn exits a pomegranate.
A masterpiece of Surrealism!

Swaying Dancer by Degas

Swaying Dancer by Degas

Famous for dancers he painted, Degas observes the reality with the eyes of a photographer.
Among the works of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum “Swaying Dancer” is certainly that in which you can notice the feature that makes  Degas’s works so captivating. The overhead shot, almost cinematographic, makes the painting innovative and different from the late 19th-century art.

Hotel Room by Hopper (1931)

The painting reproduces an illustration by Jean-Louis Forain, published in 1908 in “Les Maîtres Humoristes” that Hopper kept jealously throughout all his life.
Perhaps the woman has just arrived in the room and her luggage is on floor.
Like in all  Hopper’s works  viewers can imagine the underlying story, and this is the secret of his masterpieces.
