back from Madrid

I have just had a few days in Madrid to charge my art batteries.
Saw some great stuff, Gurnica at the Reina Sofia gallery,
The wonderful, marvelous Velazquez at the Prado Museum,- I cried for joy.
Finally a fantastic Monet exhibition at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza where they looked at Monet as the father of abstraction and juxtaposed his work with Rothko, de Kooning, Gerhard Richter, Helen Frankenthaler and Jackson Pollock's among others,- then on and on around the permanent collection , wow, never ending, around every corner fantastic examples of every genre, work from early 14th century art till the present day.
I'm knackered.
