Exhibitions
A Tale of Two Women Painters: Sofonisba Anguissola and Lavinia Fontana
Now on - Feb 2, 2020 (ends in 6 days)

The Renaissance is renowned for mercurial artists that we now call the 'Old Masters': men who proliferated the art world with beautiful, albeit male-dominated aesthetic narratives.

Not content with being rendered the subject of canvases, Sofonisba Anguissola and Lavinia Fontana became some of the first female Renaissance painters to walk among the ranks of their male contemporaries. Celebrated during their lifetimes, they were conveniently forgotten after death, with many of their works destroyed or attributed to male colleagues.

Both women lived in a time when females were barred from studying anatomy or painting large religious scenes. Sofonisba brought her craft into her personal sphere, shedding light on the world of women and children with the expert dexterity found in Flemish School paintings. Lavinia's ability to capture the decadence of noble figures in an austere light earned her a rare membership in the Roman Academy.

With this exhibition, the Prado Museum revives the art and stories of these two radical Old Mistresses, giving them their space among Velázquez, Goya, and El Greco.

Description

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

Marvel at art from Spanish masters like Velázquez and Goya, and international stars like Titian, Rembrandt, El Greco, Rubens, and Bosch. Use this nifty ticket to explore the permanent and temporary exhibitions to your art's content!

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

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

It's not all Spanish art, though – the Prado has works by a number of Flemish masters too. Rubens, Bruegel, and 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 without a visit to the Prado, so get your hands on a ticket now and avoid those long lines!

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.
