(Press release)
On the occasion of the recent addition to its collections of Portrait of José Nicolás de Azara, one of the best portraits of Mengs, the Prado Museum recreates the friendship relationship and close artistic collaboration between the neoclassical painter and the portrayed, friend and prominent representative of the Spanish Enlightenment.

Is exposition It will remain in room 38 of the Villanueva building until October 13, and is made up of 24 works (paintings, sculptures, graphic work, medals and books), mostly from the Prado and private collections.

The income of this work in the Prado Museum collections contributes to enriching the discourse of 18th century painting in its rooms and to completing Mengs's portfolio of portraits, in this case with one of his most unique works from an artistic and historical point of view.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
