8 March - 5 June. This exhibition counters the stereotypical view of women as depicted throughout the history of Western art: often appearing as seductive, indulgent and submissive, and featuring in art movements like Romanticism as apparently mere decoration.

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum on the other hand presents images of strong, empowered women. The roles in which they are depicted show them as active, independent, defiant, inspired, creative, domineering and triumphant women.

The show follows a thematic order and explores the stories behind these heroines, with themes including solitude, work, delirium, sport, war, magic, religion, reading and painting.

Tues-Sun 10.00-19.00
