Picasso Exposition in the Museo del Prado Madrid
4 marzo, 2015
Exhibition of ten masterpieces by Picasso which are transferred to the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid
Madrid, the capital city, is the most visited city in the country as well as one of the most visited cities worldwide. The Museo del Prado is located in this great city, and it is considered one of the most important museums national and internationally as well as one of the most visited ones. Its charm emanates from its large presence of works of the great European masters from the 16th to the 19th century, such as Velázquez, El Greco, Goya, Tiziano, Rubens and Bosch, whose works make its biggest collections internationally, or Murillo, Ribera, Zurbarán, Raphael, Veronese, Tintoretto and Van Dyck.
During the spring and the summer of 2015, ten masterpieces by painter Pablo Picasso will be in this museum coming from the collection of the Kunstmuseum Basel. This is the result from a transfer because of alterations in the Swiss museum. Thanks to those ten works by the Malaga-born artist, dated between 1906 and 1967, his work will be recapitulated and we could see it in the Central Gallery of Villanueva Building together with some other masterpieces in the museum.
This project is the result from a global collaborative agreement made between the Kunstmuseum Basel and the Museo del Prado together with the Museo Reina Sofia. The Museo Reina Sofia will present a group of 170 works of many painters, such as Paul Gauguin, Van Gogh and Manet or Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns and Gerhard Richter, coming from the Swiss museum too.
