  • The name Thyssen may be synonymous in Europe with elevators, but here in Madrid it means more that just lifts. The now-deceased Baron von Thyssen used his fortune not only to woo and wed the former Miss España, the lovely Carmen Bornemisza, but also to accumulate whole bunches of extra-fine art. Now on display in one of my favorite museums here in Madrid. Which I fully intend to visit before the day is out.
