Visit to the Prado Museum
On 16th March, 2010 a group of some 30 BLA members and some husbands visited the Prado to have a guided tour of the Victorian Painting Exhibition from the Museum of Arte de Ponce, Puerto Rico. Gabriele Finaldi, the Director Adjunto of the Museum had kindly agreed to conduct the visit himself. Through his knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject we had a unique insight into the paintings that were exhibited. The Victorian painters represented in this exhibition were Edward Coley Burne-Jones, Federic Leighton, William Holden Hunt, Thomas Seddon, John Everett Millais, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
