Magnificent statues reflect the faith and skill of centuries past.

Last month, the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum of Madrid inaugurated a non-traditional special exhibit. Instead of inviting visitors to a particular room to see the artwork, the museum has incorporated 10 works of (almost entirely) religious sculpture into its regular chronologically organized route, placing these works at places that relate them to works in the permanent collection, whether because of their theme or because of the historical period when they were made.

The installation, “Reality and devotion,” shows visitors some of the treasures of religious art owned by the National Museum of Sculpture of Valladolid, and is well worth a visit. The ten pieces on loan to the Thyssen Museum are of the highest quality.
