The museum excels in the Spanish artistic advancement starting from 1900, and until the 1970's. There is also an open art library for the general public, with a collection of over 10,000 books, almost 4,000 recordings and over 1,000 video clips.
In the display you can see a variety of art by famous artists. You might see works here by Dali, Miro, Julio Gonzales, with a strong emphasis on Picasso's fantastic works.
Notice the famous work by Picasso, "Guernica," for the huge size does not get close to the story that stands behind it. The painting was painted after the tough German bombings over the Spanish town of Guernica, during the Civil War of 1937. The terrible bombing killed 2,000 residents of the small town. In this amazing work of art, you can see the terrors of war in black and white. In the space where the painting is displayed, you can see the paintings that were made by Picasso before and during its creation.
The museum is one of three named the Golden Triangle of Art - the area where there are three main museums around the Paseo del Prado. One of them is the Museo de Arte Reina Sofía, and then there are also the Prado Museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum.
