Make a virtual visit to the Reina Sofia or the Thyssen Bornemisza!
It's no substitute for a real visit, but Google have launched a very ingenious website, known as GoogleArtProject, where you can make an online visit to some of the world's top art galleries, including the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen Bornemisza museums in Madrid. Not every piece of artwork is online, but you can view some of the best known works in their collections. In the Thyssen section, we were able to view works by Cézanne, Rubins, Van Gough, Monet, Renoir and Caravaggio, however the Reina Sofia section is still rather small. Fingers crossed more works will be added, and hopefully we'll see the addition of the Prado Museum some time soon.
