The Prado Museum: A Collection Of Wonders

E Documentary

Synopsis

This stunning new event film featuring Jeremy Irons would like to do just that: let the Prado speak for itself. Celebrating its 200th birthday in 2019, the Prado Museum will tell the story of its life, and take you on a spectacular journey in Madrid covering six centuries of Spanish history. History told through art, through the eight thousand masterpieces housed in the Museum’s collections, and the story behind each one. A painting is canvas, colour, matter, and form, but it is also the story of men and women, painters and kings, palaces and queens, wealth and misery, body and soul.
