From the early 1970s Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza became an active collector of American art, particularly 19th century landscape painting. As a result of this interest the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza has an extensive collection of American painting and is now considered a reference point for its knowledge and study in the context of Europe.
From 23 November 2021 the Museum presents a re-installation of around 170 works of American art in its ground floor galleries. On display will be works from the museum’s permanent collection, the Carmen Thyssen collection and the Thyssen family collection. The aim is to offer a rethinking of the current chronological presentation through a new transversal, thematic arrangement. The emphasis will now be placed on categories such as religion, politics, the environment, popular culture and urban life in order to facilitate a greater knowledge of American art and culture.
