Virtuosos from the Renaissance to modern masters, Europe offers many museums and galleries where their works are exhibited. Discover the movements that began in Europe as Dali Surrealism or Cubism of Picasso. Europe has been central to the revolution of the arts, the Renaissance. But do not miss the major works of the 20th century in search of beautiful art. On one end to another of Europe’s modern art museums tell the contemporary history of the continent and the mischievous spirit of Europeans.
The tumultuous 20th century Spain has created some of the most famous modern artists: Dali, Miro and Picasso. Stop by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid to see Guernica, a painting by 7.76 m by 3.49 m exposed on the wall of the building, illustrating the horrors of the Spanish Civil War. For the art of Vanguard, visit the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. This museum not only accommodates renowned pieces, but the building is a work of art in itself. Take pictures of the statues located outside, for example, a giant dog made of flowers and metal balls.
