Spanish Embassy in Bucharest in collaboration with the Prado National Museum of Madrid and with the support of the Bucharest Municipality Museum organizes the photo exhibition “Prado Museum Goes Out in the Street”, which can be visited from October 11 to November 24, 2019, at the Sutu Palace of Bucharest.
In this period, the tourists and the inhabitants in Bucharest will have the opportunity to admire 22 of the most representative works of the Prado Museum, the main cultural institution of Spain and one of the most important museums in the world, which celebrates 200 years this year.
The purpose of this exhibition is to takep art in the street and bring it closer to the public with the help of these magnificent images, providing all those who will come to see it a similar experience to a real visit right at the Prado Museum.
Thus, impeccable reproductions of some masterpieces signed by Goya, Velázquez, Rubens, Botticelli, Rembrandt or Hieronymus Bosch will be exhibited on a 1:1 scale.
The exhibition has been previously presented in many cities across Central and South America, Philippine, USA and Spain and provides the opportunity of a journey through the large collections of paintings hosted by the Prado Museum.
The project is designed to be a window to the knowledge of the artistic richness of the Museum and to the Western art in general, since Prado and its collections offer a comprehensive image on the European painting from the beginning of the 12th century to the first years of the 20th century. Its works allow us to go through the history of Spain and of the whole Europe, with the help of some of its greatest artists.
These works, selected with a special care and attention, unveil to the passers-by the reasons for which Prado Museum is one of the main painting galleries of the world and an authentic Heritage of the Humanity.
