Collaboration for Spanish Art
10 October 2016
Auckland Castle Trust has announced a major partnership with leading Spanish art museum, The Museo del Prado, based in Madrid.
On Thursday 6th October 2016, the Museo del Prado and Auckland Castle Trust signed a collaborative agreement to develop joint activities for the study and research of Spanish art and culture.
As part of the partnership the Museo del Prado will collaborate in the planning of the exhibition programme for Auckland Castle’s new Spanish Gallery, helping to contextualise the collections at Auckland Castle and demonstrate the breadth of the collections of the Prado.
For its part, Auckland Castle Trust will finance the Museo del Prado-Auckland Castle Fellowship, initially for one year duration, for the development of projects common to both organisations.
