New expanded edition! Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rafael Moneo designed the 2007 Prado Museum expansion--the fourth in the Madrid building's 189-year history. In addition to covering Moneo's addition, this generously illustrated volume contains reproductions of nearly 300 works--including Brueghel's "The Triumph of Death," Bosch's "The Garden of Earthly Delights," Rubens' "The Three Graces," Raphael's "The Madonna of the Fish" and Tiepolo's "Olympus"--with a particular emphasis on work by the Spanish masters, including El Greco, Velázquez, Murillo and Goya. Also included are texts by art historian Santiago Alcolea Blanch detailing the new building and contemporary Spanish sculptor Cristina Iglesias' acclaimed entrance, as well as outlining the museum's history to date, paying special attention to chief patrons who have shaped, over the centuries, one of the world's most important museums of art.
