The Fundación Amigos Museo del Prado is a private non-profit cultural institution whose origin dates back to 1980 from the initiative of a group of founders. Since its creation, numerous individuals, institutions and companies have contributed to fulfilling its founding purpose, which is none other than supporting the Prado Museum. It currently has the support of more than 41,000 Friends.
Over the past 30 years the Fundación has invited an outstanding selection of Spanish contemporary artists to dialogue with the legacy of the Prado Museum. The ongoing relationship between art of the present and past is manifest in the subsequent three collections of graphic and photographic works, where the artists approach the work of their predecessors and contemporaries. The works in the collections are in homage to the Prado but also a magnificent retrospective of almost a century of Spanish art.
