Blog reader Carlos Ygoa of Spain reports that the Prado Museum in Madrid has recently reinstalled their collection of 19th-century Spanish painting.
Carlos says, “This was the collection that used to be on view in the Casón del Buen Retiro, a sort of annex of the Prado that has been under renovation for years now. Because of this renovation, the paintings were hidden from public view for a long time. The paintings, which include works by Sorolla, Fortuny, Rosales, the Madrazos, as well as other big names of 19th C Spanish painting, have now found a permanent place in 12 new salas of the Prado.”
More info at the Prado site.
The painting is by Carlos de Haes (Spanish) "Mancorbo Canal in Picos de Europa," 1876
