Members of the Spanish Royal Family attended the twentieth anniversary celebrations of the founding of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid.

The King and Queen were accompanied by Infanta Pilar, Duchess of Badajoz. To coincide with the anniversary celebrations, Their Majesties opened the exhibition “Gauguin and the Trip to the Exotic”, which features over 100 works by 19th century French Post-Impressionist artist, Paul Gaugin.

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum was opened in October 1992 by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, at the Villahermosa Palace, which was the former Madrid residence of the Dukes of Villahermosa. The Museum was founded to house the art collection of the late Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza; his widow Baroness Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza was present at the anniversary celebrations.
