The Hermitage in Prado exhibition has opened at the Prado National Museum in Spain
On November 8th, 2011, the Hermitage in Prado exhibition began to operate at the Prado National Museum.
“This exhibition describes the Hermitage museum as a phenomenon. The majority of the items being exhibited here were collected by the Russian Tsars. In this way, we want to bring Russia to the museum’s visitors. I sincerely hope that the Spanish public will like this exhibition,” noted the director of the State Hermitage Museum, Mikhail Borisovich Piotrovsky in his video message dedicated to the opening of the exhibition.
The Hermitage in Prado exhibition is the second part of the exchange
program between the two museums: the Prado at the Hermitage exhibition
was held in the halls of the Hermitage from February 25th to May 29th
of 2011, and was visited by more than 600 000 people. Both of these exhibitions
were part of the Year of Spain in Russia and Year of Russia in Spain.
