From the 2nd of March to the 4th of July 2021
“Mythological Passions” is the Exhibition that the Museo del Prado from the 2nd of March exhibits in room C of the Jeronimos Building on mythological painting, an occasion to see one of the best selections that have been made of this theme of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, a journey through love, desire and beauty from the perspective of the mythology very fashionable in the Renaissance and the Baroque hand of great masters such as: Velazquez, Tiziano, Ribera, Rubens, Veronese, Allori, Poussin and Van Dyck.
Sponsored by the BBVA Foundation and curated by Miguel Falomir (Director of Museo del Prado), and Alejandro Vergara (Head of Conservation of Flemish Painting and Schools of the North of the Museo del Prado), we will delight in 29 works where the protagonist is Titian who was the one who recovered the most and transformed the Greco-Roman tradition. Titian painted for Philip II his so-called “Poems”, 6 canvases that have never been together again in Spain and now we have the opportunity to enjoy them.
Of course, Titian served as an inspiration to all who came after him, such as Velazquez, Rubens, Van Dyck… who created a mythological world of unparalleled beauty.
Horno, Online Art Gallery recommends this exhibition that is a must-see, it will feed you as long as you keep it in the retina.
