Description - Madrid and the Prado by Barbara Borngasser
The Prado is without doubt for Madrid what the Louvre is for Paris and the Uffizi for Florence. A guidebook through this museum with a knowledgeable commentary is therefore essential for really getting to know Madrid. However, this richly illustrated book not only portrays the city and its art in a dynamic relationship, it also relates a long and checkered history from its beginnings and its charms as a residence, to the Civil War and modern times expressed in countless churches, buildings, and squares. With this competent and visually discerning book, simply browsing through its pages becomes a culturally pleasant stroll through Madrid's streets. SELLING POINTS: Madrid reflected in its architecture, art, and history Detailed information on the art in the Prado Further important museums and buildings Up-to-date accompanying texts written by experts Numerous excurses and illustrations Glossary with the most important specialist terms High-quality photographs Colour photographs 700 colour
