This is not just another dull guidebook for the Prado. This is a guidebook that will entertain you and enhance your visit to the greatest museum in the world. This is a guidebook for the untrained, for those that believe they don’t understand or enjoy art.
The Thyssen presents a chronological narrative of art history with outstanding examples from each period and very few gaps. Indeed, visiting the museum is like strolling through the last 600 years of art history. No other private collection presents anything similar. And yes, this is another guidebook for the untrained.
An introduction to Greek Mythology by the hand of the Roman poet Ovid and his book The Metamorphoses. Illustrated with paintings from the Prado Museum's collection.
The selection in this guidebook includes 28 works that are part of the permanent collection of the museum. The only inclusion criterion was that the painting or sculpture presented erotic associations. You may be surprised at how little erotica has changed, there really is nothing new under the sun and it’s all been done before.
