The Reina Sofía Museum has over 20,000 works of art dating from the 19th century to the present. However, “only” about 1,000 works are on display on the Museum’s more than 8,750 sq.m of space in the Sabatini and Nouvel buildings, presenting an open and diverse view of art. Standing out here are works by Miró, Dalí and Francis Bacon, although the central piece is Picasso’s ‘Guernica’. The main building by Francesco Sabatini in the Neoclassical style, which once housed the old General Hospital of Madrid, stands in sharp contrast to the expansion designed by Jean Nouvel, with the distinctive touch of its bright red roof. The works on view in the two structures reflect Spain’s great interest in contemporary art.
