Leonardo exhibition and the copy of the Mona Lisa | January 2022.

Visit to the Prado Museum, Leonardo Exhibition and the copy of the Mona Lisa with the Sonia G Caballero Montessori Art School. Two days in the Prado Museum.

What better way to bring children to art, which was my origins in my profession today. Visiting the Prado Museum and great original works to awaken in the hearts of the little ones their artistic soul, accompanying children on this visit has been a trip to my childhood with my grandfather.
Today we visited the temporary exhibition of the copy of the Mona Lisa at the Prado. One of the girls, told me ” It’s the most beautiful painting I’ve ever seen!”

We also visited the exhibitions of Murillo’s Prodigal Son and the Art of Narrating the Andalusian Baroque, the exhibition of Ibero-American Art in Spain. And of course a walk through Goya, we had planned to see La maja vestida and La maja desnuda, but La maja vestida is currently in an exhibition in Basel in Switzerland until January 23. We have also seen Las Meninas by Velazquez; The Immaculate Conception by Murillo and The Good Shepherd; The Triptych of the Jarin of Delights, The Three Graces by Rubens, The Adoration of the Shepherds by Mengs.
I think it has been an unforgettable visit.
