    The Museo del Prado is the main Spanish national art museum, located in central Madrid. It features one of the world's finest collections of European art, based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, and is unquestionably the best single collection of Spanish art. Readings: “Distinctions between Renaissance and Baroque” by Heinrich Wölfflin IN Readings in Arts at the Prado 7 Art History Edited by Harold Spencer, AND “The baroque in Italy, Flanders and Spain” IN A Basic History of Art by Janson and Janson,

    Prado Museum boasts of being the main Spanish National Art Museum which is in Central Madrid. It is universally considered having the world’s finest collection of art dating from the 12th Century to 20th Century. It was established in and was first regarded as a museum of Painting and sculptures. The Prado takes an unconventional look at Spain’s most iconic art museum. Focusing on the Prado as a space of urban leisure, Eugenia Afinoguénova highlights the political history of the museum’s relation to the monarchy, the church, and the liberal nation-state, as well as its role as an extension of Madrid’s social center, the Prado Promenade.

    But Javier is too far gone in believing that the purpose of art was "to keep open certain portals to the ‘other world.’ " A bestseller in Spain, where it reinvigorated interest in the Prado (its color reproductions had to have helped), the book is an entertaining romp through art .   Javier Sierra's new The Master of the Prado follows a graduate student — also named Javier — who gets caught up in a web of arcane theories .
