Photo of the Week – Bust of Baron Hans Heinrich Thyseen-Bornemisza

This week’s photo is bust of Baron Hans Heinrich Thyseen-Bornemisza.  It is situated in the grounds of the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.

As an industrialist, he made his fortune from steel and armaments.  With his fortune he indulged in his love of art.  He inherited a large collection from his father.  He continued to add more paintings to the collection most of which are displayed in the museum which bears his name.

Until the next post, stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
