We have created a three-week course that will be a treasure hunt of some of the greatest galleries in the world including The Prado, The Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza. We are very lucky to welcome back one of our favourite lecturers and Spanish expert, Dr. Jacqueline Cockburn. She will pick her top 10 favourite Spanish and international works from three of the major galleries in Madrid, all on Museum Street. She will unravel them, paying particular attention to technique and historical context. Week with we will have a look at Picasso’s Guernica, plus other offerings at the Reina Sofia. Please come along to one, or all lectures. You are welcome to join us on the Zoom link from 10:30am for a 10:45am start, finishing by 12:00pm.
This course will lead, should you wish to come, to a follow-on trip to Madrid and Toledo hopefully leaving on October 1, 2021 for two nights. This will take us to some of the hidden gems of Madrid, such as the newly-opened Palacio de Liria, with its wonderful collection; The Colnaghi Institute; and Sorolla’s house; as well as a fabulous tour of Medieval Toledo.
