Audiovisual memory of the Museo del Prado

The Museo del Prado is making more than 400 audiovisual archives available, spanning 100 years of its history.

Among the initiatives to celebrate the Museum’s Bicentenary, and with the title “Audiovisual memory of the Museo del Prado”, a new documentary archive brings together the audiovisual history of the Museum – its buildings and collections – for the first time through film, NODO news bulletins and television. This selection of audiovisual material, which will come to number more than 400 items over the course of 2019, offers a survey of more than 100 years of images of the Prado. It can be consulted at:

In collaboration with the Filmoteca and Radio Televisión Española (RTVE), the archive starts with 300 titles, including a previously unseen documentary entitled “Introduction to the Museo del Prado” (1985) by Basilio Martín Patino, the RTVE series “Looking at a painting” with contributions from figures such as Alberti, Cela and Umbral, and full-length cinema films with actors such as Rita Hayworth, Rex Harrison, Tony Leblanc, Aurora Bautista and Concha Velasco, directed by Ramón Masats, Antonio Mercero, Jacinto Molina, Orson Welles and George Marshall, among others.

With the additional generous and disinterested participation of companies and individuals such as Video Mercury Films, the Fundación Basilio Martín Patino, ADIF (Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias) – Archivo Histórico Audiovisual, SEPI (Sociedad Estatal de Participaciones Industriales), Beda Docampo Feijóo, Ángel Durández, Ana Núñez and Juan Díaz Goy, it has been possible to structure this new archive around to two principal concepts: "The Museum as setting" and "The Museum as inspiration".
