The Golden Triangle of Art completed…

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

We finally completed the Golden Triangle of Art by visiting the outstanding art collection at the Thyssen-Bornemisza.  We were happy to see the new extension and new restaurant/cafe of the Villahermosa Palace, refurbished by Rafael Moneo (architect of LA Cathedral & Atocha garden/extension).  We were exhausted after going through this museum, as it holds the second largest private collection of art in the world.

The art deco Circulo de Belles Artes not only has a really great view of Madrid from the top, but a cool, retro 1920s bar/restaurant adorned with a massive floating chandelier.  But what we loved most of all was this classic sculpture turned into a contemporary work of art.  Watch the video:

In case you are wondering what music that is, it’s actually a song called “Yokohama” recorded from Nicasio’s gramophone on Christmas Eve. The ending beeps were recorded on La Castellana when we were crossing the street on a crosswalk.
