Open Windows 1

This first issue of Open Window, the on-line periodical on the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza’s collection, aims to encourage new and more creative, analytical and individual ways of looking. There is no doubt that seeing our paintings in different contexts – for example, the works by Lucian Freud currently on loan to the exhibition at the Centre Pompidou – offers an enriching experience that will also lead to new ideas and interpretations.

In addition, a varied range of articles offers insights and information on works in the Museum’s collections. The Flood at Port-Marly of 1876 by Alfred Sisley is analysed in the context of depictions of that subject, from Michelangelo’s The Flood up to Impressionism. An article on Two Mothers with their Children and Three seated Figures by Henry Moore allows for an examination of the importance of that artist’s Shelter Drawings for the evolution of his sculpture. The text on the Portrait of David Lyon by Sir Thomas Lawrence (ca.1825) includes previously unpublished information on the sitter’s life and on the painting’s history. Finally, Evening by Munch (1888) is interpreted as a key work for the subsequent development of the artist’s Symbolist idiom.
