Help Bookshops during Coronavirus #Díadellibro

This year's Book Day has caught us at home.
However, this is not a reason not to continue celebrating and buying books in those bookstores that we like so much.
From My Little Madrid, we support a beautiful altruistic initiative to help neighborhood bookstores: www.paraseguirleyendo.com

My little Madrid Plans during coronavirus

We have been confined since March 14th and I have personally been stressed out by the amount of balcony and indoor activities, recipes, whatsapps, fakenews and video calls that have surrounded us.
After 3 weeks and with a certain acquired calm, I felt it was the right moment to write this post, hoping that all our readers are enjoying good health and their families too.
I also want to share with you some recommendations that have helped me throughout this period of time, without wanting to overload your agenda.

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!
