Description

An ambitious exhibition that invites reflection on 16th- and 17th-century Spanish and Dutch painting, challenging historical myths and discovering their shared traits.

The Prado Museum presents 72 works from its own collection and loaned by the Rijksmuseum and a further 15 lenders including the National Gallery in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, signed by some of 17th-century Europe’s most illustrious painters. The exhibition challenges the viewer to find points of comparison between Dutch and Spanish art of the late 16th century and the 17th century.Traditionally considered to be very different, the legacy of Flemish and Italian painting was interpreted in a similar manner in Spain and in the Netherlands, developing an aesthetic that broke from Renaissance idealism and that focused on the real appearance of things and how to depict it. The artists represented in this exhibition did not express their essential national character in their works, but rather, ideas and approaches that were shared by an international community of creators.
