Goya: “Invited Work”

For a period of three months, Room 34 of the Prado’s Villanueva Building is displaying Goya’s portrait of Don Pedro de Alcántara Téllez-Girón y Pacheco, 9th Duke of Osuna, one of the most interesting works by the artist among those housed in the Frick Collection in New York. The special loan of this work falls within the context of the Museum’s “Invited Work” programme, an activity sponsored by the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado since 2010 with the aim of further enriching a visit to the Museum and establishing points of comparison that allow for a reflection on the works in the Prado’s Permanent Collection.
