Impressionists Gardens Exhibition (Jardines Impresionistas)
The Fundación Caja Madrid and the Thyssen Museum are running conjunctly a new exhibition featuring paintings of gardens by famous impressionists such as De La Croix, Munch and Klimt. Many of the works date from the mid nineteenth century, the time when new and exciting species of plants and flowers were being introduced to European and American gardens, which we can see in these paintings. The exhibition opens on 16th November and runs until 13th February. Lovers of impressionist art will also not want to miss the Renoir exhibition currently on at the Prado museum.
Address: Fundación Caja Madrid, Plaza San Martin 1, (Metro Sol or Opera) and Thyssen Museum, Paseo del Prado 8 (Metro Atocha/Banco de España).
