Goya and More. Acquisitions for the Department of Prints and Drawings of the Museo del Prado, 1997-2010
5 May to 31 July 2011
Jerónimos Building. Room D

This exhibition will present a selection of works on paper – drawings, prints and photographs – acquired by the Museo del Prado between 1997 and 2010. It will offer visitors the first opportunity to admire the most important works acquired over this period and which are normally stored in the Department of Prints and Drawings due to their fragile nature. In addition, the exhibition will set out the Museum’s principal strategies with regard to the acquisition of works on paper.
The Museum’s Department of Prints and Drawings, located in the new Jerónimos Building designed by Rafael Moneo, houses the collection of drawings, prints and old photographs that has been built up since the time of the Museum’s founding. Together with the original works from the royal collection, a number of additional groups were added such as those from the Museo de la Trinidad and the Museo de Arte Moderno. Together they constituted the core of this area of the Prado’s collection, which has been expanded over the years, particularly with the addition of the Pedro Fernández Durán Bequest in 1931. It has continued to grow over the years through significant acquisitions, particularly in the period from 1997 to 2010.
