Metapintura. Un viaje a la idea del arte.

This exhibition is one of a four-part series during the last few years (the other exhibitions: Rubens (2010), Captive Beauty (2013) and Goya in Madrid (2014)) which has offered visitors to take a closer look at the museum’s own collections and encourages them to interpret the art in a new way. This exhibition not only celebrates the Prado’s 197 year anniversary, but also the origins of artistic activity in the Modern Age, focusing on mythological and relig

Marking the 400th anniversary since Cervantes’ death, the exhibition also has a section on Don Quixote and so this is a great exhibition to visit if you’re keen to learn more about Spanish history, culture and art!
