Det skal I lave

First we'll grab a cup of coffee and have a chat about your interests. That way I can customize the tour specifically for you. The tour will last around 2.5 hours and during that time we'll see and discuss more than thirty works ranging from the "must-see" pieces, a few hidden gems, a few really strange works, and the works I feel you will enjoy based on your background/interests. The tour will really focus on the stories and symbolism behind the work and the untold scandals and personal histories of the artists who created them with particular focus on the more underrepresented queer and female artists. We'll take time to discuss the experience and struggles of women artists like Maria Blanchard, Sonia Delaunay, and Ángeles Santos in a typically male dominated art-world. We'll go into detail about Dalí and his intimate relationship with the famous poet Federico García Lorca and how their partnership gave rise to some of the most famous paintings and poetry in Spanish history. We'll spend a significant portion of the tour discussing Picasso's Guernica and how the rise of Fascism changed the course of what we now call "modern art".
Other things to note
Photos are allowed in most areas of the museum. Lockers are available for your bags and belongings.

I'm a practicing artist and art historian who left the US to pursue my doctorate in contemporary art and art history. I've taught art courses and exhibited my work globally and have finally settled in my favorite city in the world, Madrid. I have several years of experience giving VIP, scholar level museum tours all over the world in cities like Rome, New York, and Madrid and can cater the tour based on any level of art historical knowledge.

Her skal du være

We'll focus on the main galleries of the museum beginning with the Black Spain movement in the 1890's up until the fall of Fascist Spain in the 1970's. We will follow the evolution of Picasso, from his days as a young man copying Toulouse Lautrec in Paris, to his development of Cubism, and finally his masterpiece Guernica. We will really focus on the Spanish perspective to "modern art" and the ways it influenced art globally.

A great experience that adds life to key pieces within the art museum. Michael has a talent for personalizing the tour and providing extensive knowledge on key works - including their ties to politics, history, and even personal relationships among the artists. I would suggest doing both the Prado and Reina Sofía museum tours with Michael as you are able to gain a deep understanding of how classic artists in El Prado inspired contemporary artists within the Reina Sofía Museum. These are both great tours - whether you are an art lover or simply want to begin learning about Spanish art.

Michael was amazing. So informative and helpful to have him with our family of 7. He pointed out things we never would have noticed, gave us background about the era and times of the art, and was easy to understand. A great tour liked by all.

The visit of the Reina Sofia museum with Michael was very agreable. His background and the knowledge of the art he showed me, made the visit very interesting. More than a lesson in contemporary art, it was a dialogue, forcing me to think, to reason and to react. Very nice!

Excellent experience! Michael is very knowledgeable having studied art history and being an artist himself. He came prepared, and was able to show us the connections of many of the works to earlier works in other museums. Highly recommend!

Michael was very knowledgeable and thorough during his tour with us. He took time to learn about our background and interest before going into the museum. This made the experience feel more personal and connecting. Through his stories and explanations, we were able to experience and understand the modern and post modern period in Spanish art better. Paintings look deceptively simple at times, unless someone like Michael explains and points out perspectives that you should see, and hidden ideas of the artist which you were unaware of. Thank you very much for helping us discover Reina-Sofia.

The tour of the Reina Sofia with Michael was enjoyable, relaxed and extremely informative. He has a great way of allowing his expertise to inform the tour regarding the art and history and especially the personal histories of the artists in a way that would have been impossible without him. Highly recommended!
