Prado Museum Marks 200 Years with Exhibit Showcasing Gems from Its Collection

MADRID – The Prado Museum in the Spanish capital Madrid previewed an exhibition on Friday that juxtaposes artworks from the collection and celebrates the iconic museum as a globally recognized pictorial reference to mark its bicentenary.

The exhibition, which features a wealth of art history masterpieces between 1819 and 2019 including works by Francisco Goya, Joaquin Sorolla and Pablo Picasso, is curated by Javier Portus in an a-temporal way, creating interesting conversations between the artworks a good example of which is “The Nude Maja” by Goya hanging next to Picasso’s “The Lying Female Nude.”

“This exhibition offers a survey of the museum’s history that focuses on the dialogue between the Museum and society; heritage policies in Spain; the trends that have guided the growth of the museum’s collection and its transformation into a place that has allowed Spanish and foreign writers, intellectuals and artists to reflect on the country’s past and its collective identity,” a statement on the museum website said.

The Prado Museum is Spain’s primary national art museum.

The Prado is considered one of the world’s best collections of 12th to early 20th century art and the finest collection of Spanish art.

“A place of memory” (1819-2019) at the El Prado Museum in Madrid runs from Nov. 19-Oct. 3.
