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 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.

The Museo del Prado and the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum are presenting the exhibition Rubens. Painter of Sketches. Sponsored by Fundación AXA and with the collaboration of the Government of Flanders, it offers an analysis of Rubens as the most important painter of oil sketches in the history of European art.

On display for four months in Room C of the Jerónimos Building, the sketches are shown alongside a number of prints, drawings and paintings by Rubens which provide a context for them, bringing the total number of works on display to 93. Following its showing at the Prado, Rubens. Painter of Sketches will travel to the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in September.

The Museo del Prado is taking an exhibition on Velázquez to Japan

Velázquez and the Celebration of Painting: the Golden Age in the Museo del Prado comprises 61 paintings relating to Velázquez, the Spanish royal collections and Golden Age Spanish painting. Opening on 24 February at the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo, it will subsequently be shown at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art in Kobe. The Museo del Prado’s longstanding and fruitful relationship with The Yomiriui Shimbun allowed for the signing of an agreement to organise this exhibition on Velázquez during the State visit to Japan in April 2017 of Their Majesties the King and Queen of Spain and in the presence of His Majesty the King and Prime Minister Abe.
