The Prado Museum in Madrid will show up to the 25th of September the exhibition called “Rome”, Roma. This exhibition has brought to one place all the works produced in the Italian capital during the first years of the 17th century.

The Prado Museum can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday, including bank holidays, from 9am till 8pm.El precio de la entrada general es de 8 euros, mientras que la reducida para universitarios con carnet y mayores de 65 años cuesta únicamente 4 euros.

El clasicismo romano es una tendencia que surgió para acabar con el barroco y su forma de entender el arte. Para esta nueva corriente, la naturaleza era el punto de partida de la creación, la fuente de la belleza, siguiendo el concepto heredado de la Antigua Grecia.

Algunos de los principales autores que siguieron esta corriente fueron Annibale Carracci, Poussin, Paurl Brill y Claudio de Lorena, entre muchos otros, aunque no lograron una relevancia internacional.

El mejor exponente en España fue el pintor Juan Bautista Maíno, del que podremos admirar en las salas del Museo del Prado su fantástica pieza La Magdalena Penitente.

The ticket price is 8 Euros, with reduced prices for students and over 65s at 4 Euros.

Roman classism as a tendency was born to finish with the overelaborate style of the Barroque and its way of understanding art. For this new artistic current nature was the starting point for creation, the source of beauty, following the concepts inherited from Classical Greece.

Some of the most important authors that followed this current were Annibale Carracci, Poussin, Paurl Brill and Claudio de Lorena, among many others, even though they did not manage to achieve international recognition.

The main representative artist of this movement in Spain was painter Juan Bautista Maino, whose work we can enjoy in the Prado Museum including the piece La Magdalena Penitente.
