Prado Museum Tips (10)

Prado 4.

Favorite thing The Prado has also a large collection of Italien Art. Botticelli's history of Nastagio degli Onesti depicts a vision of a k knight who is forever damned to haunt his beloved and kill her is an example you can find. als o Rafael (Christus falling) and Tintoretto (washing the feet) are highlights in the Italian collection. As the Spanish royals got maried to the french royals there is also the introduction of french paintings in Madrid. the prado has works by Poussin (f.e. Parnassus) and Lorrain (Paula Romana at Ostia). Also interesting is that behind the Prado you can find the Cason del Buen Retiro. here you find work from the neoclassistic and romantic period. best paintings are by Fortuny, Rusinol, Sorolla

Prado 3.

Favorite thing The interest of the Prado lies in its royal collections. De hughe amount of foreign artpieces relects Spain's historical power over European countries especially over Belgium and Holland. the close relationship with Holalnd and Belgium let to the admiration of the pritive artists such as Campin and Van der Weyden, but most striking is the work by Bosch. Phillp 2 th. collected most of his work. some of his paintings to be seen are: Antonius' temptation, the haywagon and the Garden of Lust. Also we can see Brueghel, f.e. his Triumph of Death. And finally, the Prado exibits more than 100 canvasses by Rubens. His worship of the Wise is amongst his best ones.

Fondest memory Garden of Lust by Bosch is amazing. You can scan all the details and get lsot in the bizar phantasies of the image.

Prado 2.

Favorite thing Let me be your guide at the Prado. if you only visit the Prado one time you should go for the Spanish painters. The Golden Erea is best represented by the works of Velazquez. He was an important painter at court, as he produced from his 28 th till his dead. he painted realsm work as well as portraits, paintings with religious and mytholigical subjects. His most striking peace of art is perhaps "Las Meninas" In the 18 th century it was Goya who gave spanish painting new life. in the french earea he painted the misery of war, his Third May being the best and most moving example. later on he got fame for his paintings known as "negros."

Fondest memory The 3 th mai. Goya's best painting an a precursor of realism art in the 18 th century.

MUSEO DEL PRADO

Favorite thing From Old Madrid I took the metro to PLAZA DE CIBELES where a fountain with Roman goddess Cybele statue was spotted. It's beautiful & it was a long walk towards MUSEO DEL PRADO where I intended to visit. I passed by many interesting buildings & after having walked for at least 20 minutes, I finally found the PRADO MUSEUM!
There are many people queing to see the world's most comprehensive collection of Spanish paintings especially works by GOYA & VELAZQUEZ.

Fondest memory Pictured here is GOYA's collection of Clothed Maya.
