Velázquez, Rembrandt, Vermeer : Parallel Visions in Prado Museum

The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp' 1632 by Rembrandt

Velázquez, Rembrandt, Vermeer : Parallel Visions  in Prado Museum 

On Monday the exhibition of Velázquez, Rembrandt, Vermeer was inaugurated at the Prado Museum. It is incredible the amount of activities that the museum is carrying out on the occasion of its bicentennial.
Exhibition view 

I was lucky enough to attend the inauguration and enjoy the fantastic exhibition that takes you back more than five centuries of history. In the first room, the painting 'The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp' painted in 1632 by Rembrandt stands out, you have the glances of 24 men dressed with stiff necks and serious semblants. After the visit you will be immersed in wonderful still lifes and customary scenes combining it with large paintings from the Museum and loans that have been obtained for the Exhibition. Velázquez's Mars painting is one of my favorites as well as the drunks and seeing them is always a wonder.

The exhibition will be open until September and while visitors can also visit Fra Angelico and the exhibition of Giacometti, a luxury museum.

Long live the Prado Museum!

En Español:

EL lunes se inauguró la exposición de Velázquez, Rembrandt, Vermeer. Miradas afines en el Museo del Prado. Es increíble la cantidad de actividades que está realizando el museo con motivo de su bicentenario.

Tuve la suerte de poder asistir a la inauguración y disfrutar de la fantástica exposición que te transporta a más de cinco siglos de historia, en la primera sala destaca especialmente el cuadro de 'The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp pintado en 1632 por Rembrandt, tienes las miradas clavadas de 24 hombres vestidos con rigidos cuellos y semblantes serios. Después la visita te sumerge en maravillosos bodegones y escenas costumbristas combinandolo con grandes cuadro del Museo y prestamos que han conseguido para la Exposición. El cuadro de Marte de Velázquez es uno de mis favoritos así como los borrachos y verlos siempre es una maravilla.

La exposición estará abierta hasta septiembre y mientras los visitantes pueden también visitar Fra Angelico y la exposición de Giacometti, todo un lujo de museo.

¡Viva el Museo del Prado!

Museo Cerralbo - A Secret Jewel

pond at Museo Cerralbo

Last week Casa Decor 2013, this week Casa Cerralbo 1893! Maybe I am funny but I find lots of parallelism between the two spots! Museum Cerralbo, after all, is also a residential area where there are objects of art and decorative recreations, yet in this case, corresponding to the late nineteenth century. Well, I'm not totally serious but I cannot stop thinking that, with the obvious differences, Museo Cerralbo is as much of a display as Casa Decor, yet reflecting the taste of a different era (by the way very much in trend nowadays, just take a look at the cinema listings!).  Sigue leyendo, en español más abajo

Dalí Exhibition at Reina Sofia Museum

My Little Madrid at Dalí's exhibition

I have recently visited Reina Sofia for Dalí’s exhibitionAll of the poetic suggestions and all of the plastic possibilities and gladly noticed that even if lots of people had had my same idea, the queue went very fast. And when I got to pay I had my first good news of the day; I got a free entrance because on Sundays, from 3 pm, no one has to pay. This is a good tip, isn’t it? Sigue leyendo, en español más abajo

Hotel One Shot 23 - sophisticated and comfy

This has been my last discovery: hotel One Shot 23 at calle Prado 23. I was wandering around calle Prado - a street I highly recommend, full of surprises - and without knowing I stepped into a hiper-cosmopolitan space that happened to be the reception of a hotel: One Shot 23. Brand new! En español abajo sigue leyendo.

Hopper at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

Not very Hopper cannot stop smiling!!

Wonderful Hopper but the exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza  is finishing, must hurry up! just until Sunday  16th September!!!

I must admit I was not very keen about Hopper specially after being overwhelmed with so much information. Yet I liked the exhibition very much and appreciate his talent. It really brings together the largest and most ambitious selection of works by Hopper ever to be shown in Europe, as they proudly announce in the prospectus, so you get perfectly well the grasp of his work and life. Very good work done by the curators.

Artist - Jorge Fin - Gurriaran Art Gallery

Jorge Fin - "volando voy" 
c/Santo Tome 6

A cloud painter or a painter of clouds? Exhibition by Jorge Fin at the art gallery “Gurriaran” c/ Santo Tome 6, under the global name of “Sin Miedo” – Without Fear-. I highly recommend this painter specialized in stunning skies. His paintings are an open window to a lyric world of relaxing blue and white. Everything fits.
