European Summer Must-Sees: Museo Nacional Del Prado, Madrid
In the first of our Summer series on European galleries worth visiting, we take a look at Spain's Museo Nacional Del Prado...

This summer we see the return of European travel; the practice of jetting off to cities for long weekends and short get-aways is - barring some flight-based complications - largely back. With our ability to immerse ourselves in the art and culture of this historic continent back within our reach, gowithYamo will be trotting across Europe and highlighting the best exhibitions, permanent and momentary, that are at the top of our must-see list. 

The Museo del Prado in Madrid is a source of national pride in Spain, acting as the home to a collection of Spanish and International masterpieces. Whether you are an art history connoisseur or a lover of the contemporary, you will recognise the names that hang permanently on the walls of this historic museum: Goya, Caravaggio, Raphael, Velázquez, Bosch, Poussin, Van Dyck… the list goes on.

The Garden of Earthly Delight | Hieronymus Bosch | 1490 – 1500 

The Garden of Earthly Delights Triptych - The Collection - Museo Nacional  del Prado

‘The Garden of Earthly Delight’ is perhaps Bosch’s most complex and enigmatic creation. In this triptych, he depicts the fate of humanity as decided by the infamous actions of Adam and Eve, with the overarching and connecting theme of sin and the giving in to temptation that occurred and shaped the underworld of Hell. The use of the Garden of Eden in Neo-Classical art is well-founded and recognised, however Bosch was an artist who created visuals representative of the contemporary –  mind-dazzlingly and dangerously far ahead of its time. His nightmarish scenes are full to the brim with fantastical creatures that any contemporary psychologist would have a field day interpreting and, at a time when the Catholic Church still insisted that one could fall on the side of the Earth, it is a wonder that these gruesome but wondrous triptychs found their homes as altarpieces. 

Saturn Devouring His Son | Francisco Goya | 

Saturn Devouring His Son - Wikipedia

Francisco Goya is one of the Museo del Prado’s most cherished and celebrated artists; the museum is home to more than 900 works by Goya, making it the most extensive collection of Goya in the world. Goya is considered one of the most important Spanish artists of the late 18and early 19century, with his work spanning from deeply joyous to deeply cynical, and from light hearted to painfully yearning. One of his most gruesome paintings, part of the ‘Black Painting’ collection, is ‘Saturn Devouring His Son’. This painting is an uncomfortable experience in the eye of the beholder, depicting the Roman myth in which it was foretold that Saturn would be overthrown by one of his sons, leading him to devour all his children moments after they were born. In the grisly retelling of this story, Goya depicts a billy goat crossed with a man gnawing on flesh and blood of a mutilated corpse. 

It is quite frequent that one sees visitors and guided tours quickly shuffle past this painting. However, despite the discomfort one can feel in one’s bones, it is worth stopping a moment to admire one of Goya’s most disturbing yet spectacular paintings. 

Current Exhibition

Paret | 24/05/22 – 21/08/22 | Museo del Prado

Una cebra - Colección - Museo Nacional del Prado

Currently on view at the Prado is the first monographic exhibition dedicated to the works of Luis Paret y Alcázar, a Spanish artist of the late Baroque period. The exhibition is dedicated to highlighting the extraordinary technical level and unique originality of Paret’s skill. Scientific analysis, undertaken by the museum’s technical department, is also presented alongside the art and history revealing exquisite new information about Paret’s working method. The exhibition is a complete and comprehensive study of Paret’s prolific and varied career, divided into nine sections, that follow the ever changing and evolving talent that Paret gifted to the artworld in the 18th century. 

Madrid is a vibrant city full of life and culture, and The Museo Del Prado is the perfect place to shelter from the blazing summer sun and drink in the art of some of the greatest names in history.

Permanent Pieces 

The Garden of Earthly Delight | Hieronymus Bosch | 1490 – 1500 

The Garden of Earthly Delights Triptych - The Collection - Museo Nacional  del Prado

‘The Garden of Earthly Delight’ is perhaps Bosch’s most complex and enigmatic creation. In this triptych, he depicts the fate of humanity as decided by the infamous actions of Adam and Eve, with the overarching and connecting theme of sin and the giving in to temptation that occurred and shaped the underworld of Hell. The use of the Garden of Eden in Neo-Classical art is well-founded and recognised, however Bosch was an artist who created visuals representative of the contemporary –  mind-dazzlingly and dangerously far ahead of its time. His nightmarish scenes are full to the brim with fantastical creatures that any contemporary psychologist would have a field day interpreting and, at a time when the Catholic Church still insisted that one could fall on the side of the Earth, it is a wonder that these gruesome but wondrous triptychs found their homes as altarpieces. 

Saturn Devouring His Son | Francisco Goya | 

Saturn Devouring His Son - Wikipedia

Francisco Goya is one of the Museo del Prado’s most cherished and celebrated artists; the museum is home to more than 900 works by Goya, making it the most extensive collection of Goya in the world. Goya is considered one of the most important Spanish artists of the late 18and early 19century, with his work spanning from deeply joyous to deeply cynical, and from light hearted to painfully yearning. One of his most gruesome paintings, part of the ‘Black Painting’ collection, is ‘Saturn Devouring His Son’. This painting is an uncomfortable experience in the eye of the beholder, depicting the Roman myth in which it was foretold that Saturn would be overthrown by one of his sons, leading him to devour all his children moments after they were born. In the grisly retelling of this story, Goya depicts a billy goat crossed with a man gnawing on flesh and blood of a mutilated corpse. 

It is quite frequent that one sees visitors and guided tours quickly shuffle past this painting. However, despite the discomfort one can feel in one’s bones, it is worth stopping a moment to admire one of Goya’s most disturbing yet spectacular paintings. 

Current Exhibition

Paret | 24/05/22 – 21/08/22 | Museo del Prado

Una cebra - Colección - Museo Nacional del Prado

Currently on view at the Prado is the first monographic exhibition dedicated to the works of Luis Paret y Alcázar, a Spanish artist of the late Baroque period. The exhibition is dedicated to highlighting the extraordinary technical level and unique originality of Paret’s skill. Scientific analysis, undertaken by the museum’s technical department, is also presented alongside the art and history revealing exquisite new information about Paret’s working method. The exhibition is a complete and comprehensive study of Paret’s prolific and varied career, divided into nine sections, that follow the ever changing and evolving talent that Paret gifted to the artworld in the 18th century. 

Madrid is a vibrant city full of life and culture, and The Museo Del Prado is the perfect place to shelter from the blazing summer sun and drink in the art of some of the greatest names in history.
