The Espai Carmen Thyssen takes us to the Far West

On 25 June, the Espai Carmen Thyssen, in Sant Feliu de Guíxols, presents the exhibition “The Fantastic Far West”, curated by Miguel Àngel Blanco.

Up to 30 October 2016 you can see the exhibition that takes us off to the legendary American West with over a hundred different pieces on display, including maps from the time, paintings, sculptures, engravings, watercolours and anthropological objects reflecting the life of the Native American tribes.

The pieces come from the Carmen Thyssen Collection, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, National Museum of Anthropology, Naval Museum, National Museum of Natural Sciences, Filmoteca Española (Spanish Cinemathèque) and the Museum of Cinema-Tomàs Mallol Collection, as well as from private collectors.

The Carmen Thyssen Collection and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum contain Spain's only works of art that illustrate this episode in American history.
