In this exhibition, based on the works of art in the Prado Museum, visitors will be able to analyse the changing nature of painting and other forms of art in history through the themes of the paintings exhibited, the ways in which the artists portrayed themselves, and their ideas about their creative and working environments.
Containing mostly works in the Museum holdings, the exhibition shows the evolution of the role of art through religious or mythological narratives, the origins of artistic activity, the ‘magic’ character of image, and the emergence of the idea of art.
