The quality and variety of its collection makes the Prado one of the world's best-endowed museums. It combines a first-class collection of Spanish paintings, the most important works of the Flemish and Italian schools, and various fine examples of the German, French and English schools.
It is home to numerous masterpieces of universal art such as Las Meninas by Velázquez, the two Majas by Goya, Nobleman with his hand on his chest by El Greco, the Garden of Delights by Bosch, and The Three Graces by Rubens, among other priceless pieces of art collection, is of unfathomable proportions.
And so to pick which works to see or which galleries to visit inside the Prado Museum can be a mind-boggling experience.
I will show and explain you the masterpieces of the Prado Museum and together we will explore art's progression through Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Roccoco, Neo-Classicism and Romanticism.
It's like a "crash cours" in art history!
