Spain's greatest museum, The Prado, in your pocket.

When it opened on November 19, 1819, The Museo del Prado, in Madrid, consisted entirely of works from the Spanish royal collections. Numerous treasures have been added since opening day, but the unique strengths of the Prado's collection can still be traced to that original core of remarkable works—many acquired or commissioned from the artists themselves during the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries.

The Prado is internationally renowned for its unsurpassed collection of masterpieces by Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Goya, Hieronymus Bosch, El Greco, and Peter Paul Rubens. As this richly illustrated little volume makes clear, it also possesses a brilliant collection of paintings and drawings by other artists throughout Europe as well as fascinating decorative arts and notable sculptures.

Review:

Another in the Abbeville's Tiny Folios series, this little book is a real gem. If you've never been to the Prado Museum in Madrid, you have been blissfully unaware of all you've been missing. One look at this survey of the collection, and you'll be scouring the papers for cheap fares to Spain. Known for housing some of the finest works by Goya, El Greco, and Velazquez, the scope and variety of work--Titian, Rubens, and Bosch to mention only a few--is amazing. Most of the works in the museum were either commissioned by the Spanish court or purchased by Spanish ambassadors. Treasures of the Prado is a testament to their fine taste and vision.

About the Author:
