A look to a diferent Prado Museum angle


The tour aims to show spanish art, diferent history and periods, trough some of the more unknown but at same time, best technical art works.
From the magnificent drowing technics of Ribera to Greco's misticism or the sutile Herrera el Mozo compositions.
Of course on the way, Tiziano, Rubens and other many great artists in this "different perspective of art" tour that I like to deliver.
Let's discover them together at the Prado.

A Recent Review of this tour

Enrique is one of the best art history and cultural guides we have ever experienced. We felt like we were in the hands of Goya or El Greco with the amazing energy and education that Enrique gave us in explaining the differences in styles and how it all has played important roles in explaining the various historical and religious implications and periods of not only Spain but Europe and the world as a whole since Spain was at one point controlling a vast empire of the world. Gracias Enrique!
