The exhibition “Museo del Prado 1819-2019: A Place of Recollection” will inaugurate the special programme that the Museo del Prado has created to celebrate its Bicentenary

This exhibition will look back on two hundred years of history shared by the Museum and society, as well as focusing on Spain’s heritage policy, the developments that helped to build up the Museum’s collections, and the transformation of the Prado into a point of reference so that Spanish and foreign writers, intellectuals and artists could reflect on Spain’s past and the country’s collective identity. Organised around the art and documentary collections at the Prado (both visual and sound archives), which shall be exhibited alongside works by artists who have come into contact with the Museum over the last two centuries (such as Renoir, Manet, Chase, Picasso, Arikha, Rosales, Saura and Pollock, amongst others), the exhibition will present a total of 168 original works, 34 from different Spanish and foreign institutions, together with a significant variety of complementary materials such as documents, maps, pictures, photographs and audiovisual installations.


The Museo del Prado presents the exhibition Bartolomé Bermejo

The Museo del Prado presents an anthological exhibition organized in conjunction with the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya that enables us to admire the technical virtuosity and suggestive visual universe of Bartolomé Bermejo in all its splendor for the very first time. Bermejo was a master painter from Cordoba who pursued his professional career in the territories that made up the Kingdom of Aragon. Bartolomé Bermejo is one of the most fascinating figures from the art scene of the second half of the fifteenth century, and this exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Madrid Regional Government and featuring the support of Fundación Banco Sabadell, brings together the majority of his works for the very first time. His works are preserved at museums and in collections distributed throughout Spain, Europe and the United States, and include masterpieces such as Saint Michael Triumphant Over the Devil with the Donor Antoni Joan of Tous, from the National Gallery in London, and Pietat Desplà from the Cathedral of Barcelona, amongst others.


The Museo del Prado presents the first monographic exhibition on portraits by Lorenzo Lotto

The Museo del Prado and the National Gallery in London are presenting the first major monographic exhibition on portraits by Lorenzo Lotto, one of the most unique and fascinating artists of the Italian Cinquecento. The intensity of these works and the variety and sophistication of the visual and intellectual resources that they deploy make Lotto the first modern portraitist. Organised with the sole sponsorship of Fundación BBVA, this exhibition features 38 paintings, 10 drawings, a print and around 15 sculptures and objects similar to those depicted in the portraits, the latter offering a reflection of material culture of the time. The exhibition is on display in Rooms A and B of the Prado’s Jerónimos Building and is curated by Enrico Maria Dal Pozzolo of the University of Verona, and Miguel Falomir, director of the Museo del Prado.


The Museo del Prado is presenting The Triumph of Death by Pieter Bruegel the Elder following its recent restoration

This masterpiece by one of the most important painters in European art has recently been the subject of a major restoration sponsored by Fundación Iberdrola España, a Protector Sponsor of the Museo del Prado’s Restoration Programme. The painting has now regained its original values, which had been affected by areas of repainting and coloured varnishes on the pictorial surface, in addition to a cradle that impeded the natural movement of the wood panel on which it is painted.


The Museo del Prado is displaying Federico de Madrazo’s portrait of the Marchioness of Espeja, donated by Alicia Koplowitz

This work increases the Prado’s holdings of Federico de Madrazo to offer a complete survey of his work.


The Museo del Prado presents IN LAPIDE DEPICTUM. Italian painting on stone, 1530-1555

The Museo del Prado is presenting an exceptional exhibition in terms of both the unusual nature of the material and its fragility, due to which some of the works on display are scarcely known to the public. IN LAPIDE DEPICTUM. Italian painting on stone, 1530-1555, shown in Room D of the Jerónimos Building until 5 August, brings together a selection of nine paintings on monochrome stone (slate and white marble) by Italian painters such as Sebastiano del Piombo, Titian, Daniele da Volterra and Leandro Bassano, which reflect the consolidation of a new approach to artistic techniques that emerged in the early decades of the 16th century. They are displayed alongside classical Roman works and specimens of natural stone that provide a context for the relationship between painting and natural history, geology and archaeology. Three of the works from the Prado’s own collection selected for the exhibition have undergone lengthy and complex restoration, funded by Fundación Iberdrola España as Protector Sponsor of the Museum’s Restoration Programme.
