Equality in Art!

Wow! Madrid’s Museum del Prado is overhauling itself. It is launching a new research grant dedicated to gender issues and has pledged that their art collections will become more inclusive.   As a priority, there will be more pieces by female artists, which will be difficult, if they’re to find a female hand to rival that of its Goya collection. However, they have promised to update their 19th century collection without delay.

The museum’s director commented on the time taken to examine the museum’s collections. “We are dependant upon the ups and downs of the moment, but this has been one of the few positives of the pandemic.”
