The Queensland Art Gallery hosted the ‘Portrait of Spain: Masterpieces from the Prado’ from 21st of July till 4th of November 2012.
The Exhibition has been specially curated for the Queensland Art Gallery by the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid (the Prado). It is the largest and most significant international loan the Prado has ever undertaken, and is also the first exhibition from their collection ever to be shown in the Southern Hemisphere.
The exhibition featured over 100 masterpieces from one of the most revered collections of European painting in the world and tells the story of the evolution of painting in Spain over three and a half centuries.
as a Student Ambassador I got the chance to visit this wonderful Exhibition .. a once in a life time chance i might say. I have always wanted to travel to Spain and Visit Madrid. but thanks to the QAG they came to me in Brisbane .. what a great opportunity that i couldn't miss.
the vibrant atmosphere in the exhibition was GREAT!!! the music, the food, the paintings, the overall layout of the exhibition and not to forget the educational resources placed all over Queensland Art Gallery.
I was lucky to have been there on a Friday night which is the Special day where they open the Gallery Up Late :)
