Museo del Prado 1819-2019. A place of memory.
In celebration of its 200th anniversary, the National Prado Museum has created a new chronological tour. Broken down into eight stages, it shows how the institution has developed its own personality over the years, at the same time as reflecting the historical path of Spain.
On 19 November 1819, the Royal Museum first opened its doors thanks to funds from the royal collections. It would go on to become one of the most important collections of Western paintings, a point of reference for Spanish culture and a source of collective pride. 200 years after it was founded, the National Prado Museum is holding this exhibition curated by Javier Portús, its Chief Curator of Spanish Painting (up to 1700). The chronological tour covers the museum's development as a living institution, influenced by the country's past.
