“Excellent Henri Cartier-Bresson Exhibit”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

A wonderful exhibit that was incredibly comprehensive and informative. If you're interested in photojournalism and its history, this would be an excellent exhibit to check out.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Fundacion Mapfre operates a wonderful gallery in central Madrid that is available without an admission fee. At the moment, the Sala de Exposiciones, at Barbara de Braganza, is showing retrospective work of a very strong young British photographer, Vanessa Winship, whose powerful black and white images would qualify her as a Magnum shoe-in. The show is extremely well curated and hung in two large, state-of-the-art galleries. The next show will feature the work of Henri Cartier Bresson. If these shows are a true sample of the Foundation's offerings, a visit should be de rigueur when in a Madrid.

“Free!! Great photo gallery”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This free photo gallery had a fantastic show while I was there and I am so glad I went back after finding it unexpectedly closed on my first attempt to locate it. the gallery itself is downstairs and a labyrinth of rooms but well worth it.

“Easy to miss among the big museums, worth a look”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This space is a pleasant break from the über-museums like El Prado and Reina Sofía. Intimate and scaled for a quick visit, it features modern art in a great building. Not enough time for Goya and Velazquez overdose? Check this one for quick art fix.
