Exhibitions
Velázquez, Rembrandt, Vermeer. Parallel visions
Now on - Sep 29, 2019

Separated by war, national ideologies, religious disparities, and distance, it's long been posited that 16th and 17th-century Spanish and Dutch art aren't alike. Rembrandt and Vermeer are 'very Dutch', while Velázquez is, well, 'very Spanish'.

The Prado Museum challenges this perception by exhibiting 72 works from Spain and the Lowlands to show common artistic traits that developed in parallel. This exhibition invites visitors to examine the representational and formal similarities (and differences) that come through in the art of two regions, which surpasses nationalist ideologies and gives way to an international community of creators.

Description

Welcome to Spain's premier art museum. Standing alongside the likes of the Louvre, the Vatican Museums, and the Met, the Prado Museum is home to some of the most iconic art masterpieces in human history, housed in a beautifully elegant castle in central Madrid.

Marvel at art from Spanish masters like Velázquez and Goya to works by Titian, Rembrandt, El Greco, Rubens, Bosch and more. With this nifty ticket, the permanent and temporary exhibitions are yours to explore to your art's content!

There are more than 7,000 paintings in the Museo del Prado’s collection (although only around 1,500 are on display at any given time) and each offers a penetrating look at the celebrated history of European art.

The collection includes a large number of paintings by Spanish Golden Age golden boy Velázquez, and an overview of the somber, sometimes darkly psychological, works of Goya - widely considered to be the most important Spanish artist of his era.

It's not all Spanish art – Prado has works by a number of Flemish masters too: Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel, and Anton Van Dyck are all well represented here. The collection also includes Hieronymus Bosch’s remarkable Garden of Earthly Delights, easily the world’s best-known triptych.

No visit to Madrid is complete with a visit to the Prado, so get your hands on a ticket now and avoid those long lines later.

Insider tip

Go in the morning for more chance of peace and quiet. The museum is worth an extended visit, so plan to grab lunch at the excellent Café Prado, then carry on exploring the exhibits. Convenient and delicious.
