Master Class at the Prado

This 3 hour Master Class in the Prado Museum will save you time trying to navigate the rooms and help you focus on key artworks as we explore and discuss the highlights of the collection.

Learn about exquisite 15th-century panels produced in the Low Countries, the artistic revolution of the Venetian Renaissance and the significance of the art produced by Spanish masters such as Velazquez and Goya. The story of how this collection was formed is crucial to our understanding of Spanish history and politics.

We explore themes such as patronage, history of taste and fashion and artistic techniques. Together, we decipher the underlying messages and the artistic legacy from Old Masters that are contained within a selection of paintings. We decode the layers of meaning and discuss the inspiration behind some of the masterpieces in this world-class Museum.

This is a truly engaging learning experience designed and led by a fully qualified Art History university professor, Dr. Almudena Cros (BA Hons, MA, PhD Warwick University), with extensive teaching experience and specialist knowledge.  Almudena has lived in Venice and Rome, so she is very familiar with Italian art and culture.  Her Master's degree was on Venetian Art, one of the strengths of the Prado collection, which includes seminal works by Titian and Tintoretto.  

The Prado is our classroom, and you will thoroughly enjoy this interactive lesson. You will come out with a new appreciation for Art.
