A new frame for "The Spinners"

One of the great masterpieces of European art, The Spinners by Velázquez, is presented with a new frame that hides the later 18th century additions to the canvas from view and allows the visitor to contemplate the composition as conceived by Velázquez. 

Javier Portús (Chief Curator of Spanish Painting), Laura Alba, Inma Echeverría and Jaime García-Máiquez (Technical Documentation Section), Lola Gayo y Maite Jover (Analysis Laboratory), Enrique Quintana (Head of Painting Restoration and Technical Documentation) y Gemma García (Restoration) invite us to look again at the scene of The Spinners and to discover Velázquez's technique, the history of these additions and the design of the new frame.
