Prado Museum

The Museo del Prado opened to the public on 19 November 1819 as a Royal Museum of Painting and Sculpture. In 2019, we celebrated our Bicentenary, a commemoration that will reveal the path covered since 1819 until today. On this special occasion, we wanted to reflect on the future and the forthcoming challenges for this and the other great Museums of ancient painting: the need to attract social groups that traditionally are not attracted by the collections, to encourage gender and minority research studies or the challenges caused by overcrowding. Furthermore, for the following years the finalization of the Prado Campus is expected, adding the last building, the Hall of Realms, the old Buen Retiro Palace, an incorporation that will imply a rethinking of the current display of the collections. The activity plan for the bicentenary reinforces the usual programme of the Museo del Prado, insisting on the above mentioned aspects. The building that today houses the Museo Nacional del Prado was designed by architect Juan de Villanueva in 1785. It was constructed to house the Natural History Cabinet, by orders of King Charles III. However, the building's final purpose - as the new Royal Museum of Paintings and Sculptures - was the decision of the monarch's grandson, King Ferdinand VII, encouraged by his wife Queen Maria Isabel de Braganza.The Royal Museum, soon quickly renamed the National Museum of Paintings and Sculptures and subsequently the Museo Nacional del Prado, opened to the public for the first time in November 1819. For centuries, artists have drawn on Biblical themes and stories to depict their religious devotion, several of which depict Jewish life, and Judaism in general. The Prado Museum is full of artwork depicting Jewish life and Spain's Sephardic past. One such masterpiece is the Las Meninas which shows the truth behind Diego Velazquez's purported Jewish heritage.

Han sido unos días maravillosos compartiendo mi amor por el legado judío español con los estudiantes de Kivunim. Muchos han sido los momentos mágicos, pero sin duda alguna para mí el más importante ha sido el encuentro con los estudiantes del colegio Ibn Gabirol de Madrid y con su director rabbi Pinhas Punturello. Un encuentro que me ha colmado de esperanza por el futuro de Sefarad.

“Good Jew, Dead Jew.” “Jewish Murderer, We Are Going After You.” were the graffitis that appeared in Madrid’s Jewish cemetery.

The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain, the Jewish Community of Madrid and the Movement against Intolerance issued a statement yesterday in which they “strongly” condemn the graffiti and call for the facts to be investigated.

In the statement, the Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain (FCJE) urge the authorities to “pursue and condemn” the perpetrators of the graffiti.

The FCJE and the CJM point out that they are taking all appropriate legal action “so that this crime of anti-Semitic hatred does not go unpunished”.

For its part, the Movement against Intolerance (MCI) has filed a complaint with the Madrid Public Prosecutor’s Office for Hate Crimes which, in addition to investigating the facts that could constitute a crime under Article 510 of the Criminal Code, calls for an investigation “into whether these anti-Semitic acts could have been carried out by a neo-Nazi organisation, in the wake of the campaigns that are taking place elsewhere in Europe”.

“Anti-Semitism, as well as phobia towards any group, is intolerable, and we will not stop until the weight of the law falls on the authors of this irrational and unacceptable display of hate,” the statement concluded.

Today, an estimated 13,000 (affiliated) and 50,000 (resident) Jews live in Spain, the country where the inquisition took place 5 centuries ago.
