The Prado Is Installing Replica Works by Goya, El Greco, and Other Old Masters From Its Collection All Over Madrid—See Images Here
The Prado's "Around the Corner" project is on view through June 6.
Walking along the streets of Madrid right now, locals and visitors alike will discover hidden gems all around town. Exact replicas of masterpieces from the Prado museum, including paintings by Goya, El Greco, and Fra Angelico, have been installed behind tree branches, inside airport security stations, on the sides of buildings, and along wrought-iron fences.
The Prado’s project, titled “Just Around the Corner,” is intended to “alter the daily life of citizens” by displaying works in “unexpected, close, and surprising places.” It’s part of a series of initiatives that aim to bring art outside the museum through a series of interventions that disperse aspects of the Prado’s collection. Previous iterations include “The Prado in the Streets” and “Today is the Prado.”
Below, see images from the project, which is on view through June 6.
