The Prado Museum in Madrid suggests a thought-provoking tour of its most iconic works. A visit which meets the new needs for distancing and limited numbers, and which offers dialogues never seen before between key pieces in its permanent collection.
The entrance to the exhibition emphasises its goal: the museum reopens full of light and generous artistic dialogues. The Annunciation by Fra Angelico and the Descent from the Cross by Rogier van der Weyden are the starting point of a route with the museum’s Central Gallery as its axis. This is an ample space full of natural light, drawing us in to see more unique dialogues, such as the Saturns of Goya and Rubens, or the most famous works of Velázquez.A total of 249 works of art are presented in terms of influences, admiration and rivalries, occasionally subverting the traditional distribution by chronology or by national schools.
