Descent from the Cross, Rogier van der Weyden, 220 cm x 262 cm, ca. 1435. Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado
This exhibition is organised in conjunction with the restoration of the great Crucifixion in El Escorial, which is currently being undertaken at the Prado as part of a collaborative institutional agreement between the Museum and Patrimonio Nacional.
The exhibition will provide a unique and remarkable opportunity to see The Crucifixion, The Descent from the Cross and The Durán Virgin alongside other works by the Flemish artist that were in Spain from an early date, such as the celebrated Miraflores Triptych (now Berlin, Gemäldegalerie). As a result, the exhibition will allow for an appreciation of the artist’s finest and most fully documented works, as well as analysing different and fundamental aspects of Van der Weyden’s creative activity, such as the close links between his works and sculpture, the far-reaching subsequent influence of his art and its repercussion in Spain.
