Synopsis: The Prado Museum by Christopher Brown (Author), Francis Haskell (Author), Alfonso E. Perez Sanchez (Author), Alessandro Bettagno (Author), published by Fonds Mercator, 2001. The Prado Museum is essential reading for everyone who wants to know more about the masterpieces in the collection of the Prado: art historians, enthusiasts, students, collectors, or visitors to the museum. Almost a thousand paintings were specifically photographed for this beautiful and handsomely designed book, making this publication unique. The photographs are integrated within the chapters and are closely associated with the relevant text; reading this book is almost as a walk through the rooms of the museum.
Review: If you've never been to the Prado Museum in Madrid, you're blissfully unaware of all you've been missing. One look at this exquisite catalogue 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 Velázquez, the museum's scope and variety of work--Titian, Rubens, Bosch, Bruegel, and Poussin, among others--are truly amazing. Clear, informative essays by scholars of European art accompany sections covering the museum's collections of Spanish, Italian, Flemish, Dutch, German, French, and English paintings. Each of the 861 color plates in this airy, elegant book jumps off the page and begs to be more closely examined. Most of the museum's works were either commissioned by the Spanish court or purchased by Spanish ambassadors, and the collection is a testament to their fine taste and vision.
