The Prado is extending “Reunited” Monday, September 7, 2020

The Central Gallery in the Villanueva Building is the principal axis of this display, which received more than 100,000 visitors in July and August, most of them local people from Madrid.

Due to current restrictions and the special visiting conditions deriving from the Covid-19 pandemic, the maximum number of visitors to the galleries will remain at 2,500 a day.

The Museo del Prado is working on the inauguration of “Uninvited Guests”, the first exhibition to focus on the role of women in the Spanish art system in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Featuring some of the most important works produced by women artists in this period, the exhibition was postponed after the declaration of the state of alarm in Spain. The Museum is also working on the gradual reopening of its other spaces, depending on how the present situation evolves.

The Museo del Prado is extending “Reunited”, the special installation that opened on 6 June 2020 and which, despite a lack of international tourists, has received nearly 150,000 visitors, 75% of them from the Region of Madrid. With its extension more visitors will be able to enjoy this exceptional installation, which brings together many of the collection’s most celebrated works, displayed in the Central Gallery and adjoining rooms.

In addition, on 6 October the Museum has scheduled the opening of “Uninvited Guests”. Based primarily on works from the Prado’s own holdings, this is the first exhibition to analyse the role of women in the Spanish art system in the 19th and early 20th century. Structured into two principal areas, “Uninvited Guests” will firstly allow for an appreciation of the image of women which the State legitimised through prizes, exhibitions and museums, and secondly the place they occupied in society.

The Museum is also working on the gradual reopening of the remainder of its galleries in the light of the evolution of the present situation and the recommendations and regulations established by the relevant authorities.
