The Prado shines a light on the artworks that Spanish explorers took back with them from the New World
Completing their tornaviaje, Spanish explorers took back with them a host of artworks from the New World. These ranged from topographical depictions of unfamiliar landscapes to zealous depictions of conquest, and from glittering decorative objects to private, devotional images. This exhibition at the Prado Museum in Madrid (5 October–13 February 2022) considers the influence of these works upon European art, as they arrived in Spain before spreading out through the continent.
