Exhibition about Toulouse-Lautrec in Museo Carmen Thyssen

09maalis

This week the blog of Hotel Florida Spa is all about art as we would like to recommend you a fantastic exhibition currently on in the capital of Costa del Sol.

From the 21st of February till the 9th of June Museo Carmen Thyssen holds an interesting exhibition called “Toulouse-Lautrec and the circus”.

As we pointed out in the past when we mentioned this museum, Museo Carmen Thyssen is based in a beautiful old building right in the heart of Malaga. It opens Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 A.M to 8:00 P.M and its entry price depends on if you only want to see the temporary exhibition or both, temporary and permanent. What is constant is the fact every Sunday from 5:00 P.M its entry is free.   

The exhibition we mentioned above, called “Toulouse-Lautrec” is a temporary one that offers its visitors the possibility to discover the fascinating drawings made by the artist using coloured pencils during a short period of convalescence in a sanatorium in Paris.

If you really like art and you are planning to stay with us shortly, we recommend you go to visit the Thyssen Museum to enjoy this superb exhibition.

Enjoy art in Costa del Sol!
