Prado Museum - Portrait of Philip III by Velazquez

On display for the first time in the Museum’s galleries is Portrait of Philip III by Velazquez, a work that has been donated by William B. Jordan to American Friends of the Prado Museum, which has ceded it to the Museum as a temporary deposit.
Velazquez’s painting is displayed in the Prado’s principal gallery alongside Philip II offering the Infante don Fernando to Victory by Titian, which can now be seen following its recent restoration undertaken with the support of Fundacion Iberdrola Espana, a Benefactor Member of the Museum’s Restoration Programme. Titian’s painting hung in the same room (the Salon Nuevo in the Alcazar in Madrid) as The Expulsion of the Moriscos by Velazquez, a painting directly connected with the new portrait of Philip III, which was executed as a study for it.
 
The exhibition will be on view until October 29, 2017
