Photographer's Note

Important to see the WS.

Madrid Series is already a World Heritage Site, for its axis Paseo del Prado and Buen Retiro. But not only culture, but also science and nature in an urban space of 190 hectares. The Madrid candidacy bases the exceptional universal value that the organism requires on precisely this union between monumentality, culture and nature.


2 - The Prado National Museum in Madrid is one of the most important in the world, as well as one of the most visited and is considered the most important cultural institution in Spain, according to the 2020 Cultural Observatory, a study carried out among several hundred of professionals in the sector. Uniquely rich in paintings by Spanish and European masters from the 15th to 18th centuries, and Spanish from the 19th centuries, according to the art historian and Hispanicist Jonathan Brown 剌ew would dare to doubt that it is the World's most important museum for European painting .

Its main attraction lies in the wide presence of Vel嫙quez, el Greco, Goya (the artist most widely represented in the museum), Titian, Rubens and Bosco, of which it has the best and most extensive collections that exist worldwide. To which we must add outstanding groups of such important authors as Murillo, Ribera, Zurbar嫕, Fra Angelico, Rafael, Veronese, Tintoretto, Durero, Patinir, Antonio Moro, Van Dyck or Poussin, to name just a few of the most relevant.

The inventory of artistic goods comprised, as of February 2017, more than 35,000 objects, broken down into 8,045 paintings, 9,561 drawings, 5,973 prints and 34 stamping matrices, 971 sculptures (in addition to 154 fragments), 1,189 pieces of decorative arts, 38 weapons and armor, 2,155 medals and coins, over 15,000 photographs, 4 books and 155 maps.

Due to endemic space limitations, the museum exhibited a selection of works of the highest quality (about 900), which is why it was defined as "the highest concentration of masterpieces per square meter." With the expansion of Rafael Moneo, inaugurated in 2007, it was expected that the exhibited selection would grow by 50%, with some 450 more works.1 In addition, in 2018 the rooms of the north attic were reopened, after which the total number of exhibited pieces around 1700 and when the building of the Hall of Kingdoms is rehabilitated, between 250 and 300 more paintings will be hung in it.

Like other great European museums, such as the Louvre in Paris and the Uffizi in Florence, the Prado owes its origins to the collecting fondness of ruling dynasties over several centuries. It reflects the personal tastes of the Spanish kings and their network of alliances and their political enmities, making it an asymmetrical collection; some artists and styles have an insurmountable repertoire, and on the contrary others are not represented or scarcely represented. Only since the 20th century has it been attempted, with uneven results, to solve some absences.

The Prado is not an encyclopedic museum in the style of the Louvre, the Hermitage, the Metropolitan, the National Gallery in London, or even (on a much smaller scale) the neighboring Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which has works from virtually every schools and times. On the contrary, it is an intense and distinguished collection, essentially made up of a few kings who are fond of art, where many works were created to order. The collection from the Royal Collection has been complemented with subsequent contributions, which have barely modified its initial profile, since, unlike what is usual in national art galleries in other countries, efforts have, rather than to complete the deficiencies, have aimed at reinforcing the essential nucleus.

Many experts consider it a collection "of painters admired by painters", inexhaustible teaching for new generations of artists, from Manet, Mary Cassatt, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec and Degas, who visited the museum in the 19th century, to Picasso, Matisse, Dal, Francis Bacon, David Hockney and Antonio Saura, who said: "This museum is not the largest, but it is the most intense."

The pictorial schools of Spain, Flanders and Italy (especially Venice) show the leading role in the Prado, followed by the French collection, more limited although with good examples of Nicolas Poussin and Claudio de Lorena. German painting has a discontinuous repertoire, with four masterpieces by Drer and multiple portraits by Mengs as the main treasures. Along with the short repertoire of British painting, limited almost to the portrait genre, we must mention Dutch painting, a section that is not too wide but includes Rembrandt.

Although they are less known aspects, the museum also has an important section of Decorative Arts (which includes the Treasure of the Dolphin) and a collection of sculptures, in which the Greco-Roman ones stand out.

Together with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sof燰, the Museo Nacional del Prado forms the so-called Triangle of Art, a mecca for many tourists from around the world. This area is enriched by other nearby institutions: the National Archaeological Museum, the National Museum of Decorative Arts, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando and other small museums.

Importante ver los WS.

Serie Madrid ya es Patrimonio de la Humanidad, por su eje Paseo del Prado y Buen Retiro. Pero no s鏊o cultura, tambi幯 ciencias y naturaleza en un espacio urbano de 190 hect嫫eas. La candidatura de Madrid basa el valor universal excepcional que requiere el organismo en, precisamente, esta uni鏮 entre monumentalidad, cultura y naturaleza.


02 - El Museo Nacional del Prado, en Madrid es uno de los m嫳 importantes del mundo, as como uno de los m嫳 visitados y est considerada la instituci鏮 cultural m嫳 importante de Espa鎙, segn el Observatorio de la Cultura de 2020, estudio realizado entre varios centenares de profesionales del sector. Singularmente rico en cuadros de maestros espa隳les y del resto de Europa de los siglos XV al XVIII, y espa隳les del XIX, segn el historiador del arte e hispanista Jonathan Brown 厚ocos se atrever燰n a poner en duda que es el museo m嫳 importante del mundo en pintura europea.

Su principal atractivo radica en la amplia presencia de Vel嫙quez, el Greco, Goya (el artista m嫳 extensamente representado en el museo),Tiziano, Rubens y el Bosco, de los que posee las mejores y m嫳 extensas colecciones que existen a nivel mundial, a lo que hay que sumar destacados conjuntos de autores tan importantes como Murillo, Ribera, Zurbar嫕, Fra Angelico, Rafael, Veronese, Tintoretto, Durero, Patinir, Antonio Moro, Van Dyck o Poussin, por citar solo algunos de los m嫳 relevantes.

El inventario de bienes art疄ticos comprend燰, a febrero de 2017, m嫳 de 35 000 objetos, desglosados en 8045 pinturas, 9561 dibujos, 5973 estampas y 34 matrices de estampaci鏮, 971 esculturas (adem嫳 de 154 fragmentos), 1189 piezas de artes decorativas, 38 armas y armaduras, 2155 medallas y monedas, por encima de 15 000 fotograf燰s, 4 libros y 155 mapas.

Por end幦icas limitaciones de espacio, el museo exhib燰 una selecci鏮 de obras de m嫞ima calidad (unas 900), por lo que era definido como 勁a mayor concentraci鏮 de obras maestras por metro cuadrado. Con la ampliaci鏮 de Rafael Moneo, inaugurada en 2007, se previ que la selecci鏮 expuesta crecer燰 en un 50 %, con unas 450 obras m嫳.1 Adem嫳, en 2018 se reabrieron las salas del 嫢ico norte, tras lo cual el total de piezas expuestas ronda las 1700 y cuando se rehabilite el edificio del Sal鏮 de Reinos se colgar嫕 en 幨 entre 250 y 300 pinturas m嫳.

Al igual que otros grandes museos europeos, como el Louvre de Par疄 y los Uffizi de Florencia, el Prado debe su origen a la afici鏮 coleccionista de las dinast燰s gobernantes a lo largo de varios siglos. Refleja los gustos personales de los reyes espa隳les y su red de alianzas y sus enemistades pol癃icas, por lo que es una colecci鏮 asim彋rica; algunos artistas y estilos tienen un repertorio insuperable, y por el contrario otros se hallan representados nula o escasamente. Solo desde el siglo XX se procura, con resultados desiguales, solventar algunas ausencias.

El Prado no es un museo enciclop嶮ico al estilo del Museo del Louvre, el Hermitage, el Metropolitan, la National Gallery de Londres, o incluso (a una escala mucho m嫳 reducida) el vecino Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, que tienen obras de pr塶ticamente todas las escuelas y 廧ocas. Por el contrario, es una colecci鏮 intensa y distinguida, formada esencialmente por unos pocos reyes aficionados al arte, donde muchas obras fueron creadas por encargo. El fondo procedente de la Colecci鏮 Real se ha ido complementando con aportaciones posteriores, que apenas han modificado su perfil inicial, puesto que, a diferencia de lo habitual en las pinacotecas nacionales de otros pa疄es, los esfuerzos, m嫳 que a completar las faltas, han ido dirigidos a reforzar el ncleo esencial.

Muchos expertos la consideran una colecci鏮 削e pintores admirados por pintores, ense鎙nza inagotable para nuevas generaciones de artistas, desde Manet, Mary Cassatt, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec y Degas, que visitaron el museo en el siglo XIX, hasta Picasso, Matisse, Dal, Francis Bacon, David Hockney y Antonio Saura, quien dec燰: 亟ste museo no es el m嫳 extenso, pero s el m嫳 intenso.

Las escuelas pict鏎icas de Espa鎙, Flandes e Italia (sobre todo Venecia) ostentan el protagonismo en el Prado, seguidas por el fondo franc廥, m嫳 limitado si bien con buenos ejemplos de Nicolas Poussin y Claudio de Lorena. La pintura alemana cuenta con un repertorio discontinuo, con cuatro obras maestras de Durero y mltiples retratos de Mengs como principales tesoros. Junto al breve repertorio de pintura brit嫕ica, circunscrito casi al g幯ero del retrato, hay que mencionar la pintura neerlandesa, una secci鏮 no demasiado amplia pero que incluye a Rembrandt.

Aunque sean aspectos menos conocidos, el museo cuenta tambi幯 con una importante secci鏮 de Artes decorativas (que incluye el Tesoro del Delf璯) y con una colecci鏮 de esculturas, en la que destacan las greco-romanas.

Junto con el Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza y el Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sof燰, el Museo Nacional del Prado forma el llamado Tri嫕gulo del Arte, meca de numerosos turistas de todo el mundo. Esta 嫫ea se enriquece con otras instituciones cercanas: el Museo Arqueol鏬ico Nacional, el Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas, la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando y otros peque隳s museos.
