Through micro-sponsorship we invite you to take part in the care and conservation of the most iconic masterpieces in our permanent collection.

Art is a place of encounter and a living memory of our history. It is through culture that we manage to move forward as a society, making it more tolerant and freer. Art is an element of joy. It is directly linked to the ability to feel, to become emotional and to be able to empathize.

Through various campaigns, together we have not only covered an essential part of the restoration of the works, but also serve as a vehicle for their dissemination, so that today's society, as well as future generations, can continue to enjoy them.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to become a patron and help us in our mission of preserving and restoring the collections that we house. This will continue to be a museum for everyone.

Projects realised thanks to your collaboration

Together we have joined forces to care for our heritage.

Waterloo Bridge, by André Derain

Pollution, a greyish fog that degrades and darkens everything it envelops, can sometimes make us forget that, down underneath, there was once shimmering life, light and color that belonged to us and which we are responsible for protecting and restoring.

In order to participate in the care of one of the museum's major masterpieces, deteriorated by the passage of time, donors were able to choose which colours and brushstrokes of the canvas they wanted to help restore.

Chinese Bowl with Flowers, Jacques Linard

The Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza and Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid, joined forces to restore Jacques Linard's painting "Chinese Porcelain with Flowers", recovering its original colours, which had aged and appeared faded due to the darkening of the varnish.

By sponsoring one of the flowers or leaves of this magnificent work, the patrons prolonged its life and enjoyment, while having exclusive access to the research and conservation process and receiving a personalised certificate of their support.

Under the slogan Protect what makes us human, more than 600 donors collaborated with the museum in our first crowdfunding campaign. Their involvement and contributions made possible the restoration of one of the masterpieces of the permanent collection.

For this project, Canaletto's work was divided into 1,000 fragments. Donors were thus able to select which region of the painting to sponsor with their contribution.
