One of the most difficult things for us to accept during this last pandemic year is that we have missed all the opportunities for visiting the art galleries in person. Fortunately, living in 2021 involves a technological advance that few had imagined until this moment.
We are fortunate to have access to certain virtual exhibitions around the world, and today we want to emphasize how this new art is developing within the comfort of our homes. We invite you to take a trip around the world using these suggestions that will broaden your horizons.
Museo Nacional Del Prado
It was in 1819 when this museum, located in Madrid, Spain, opened its doors for the first time. Since then, its fame has been consolidated worldwide as it houses works by painters such as Diego Velázquez, El Greco, Titian, El Bosco and Francisco José de Goya.
By means of a virtual visit, it is possible to discover an extensive variety of its enormous catalog of works, and the best thing is that it is completely free. We suggest you take a look at the Masterpieces section through this *Link*
Diana Markosian: ‘Santa Barbara’
From 13 February to 27 June
In her latest collection, this artist and photographer explores nature within the family unit and the hope of the “American dream”. The project is named after a soap opera that Diana watched as a child in Moscow. “Santa Barbara” tells of her mother’s journey to the United States when she was taken as a mail-order bride seeking a new life for her children. The photographs feature actors and actresses representing these scenes, as well as an exceptional color palette.

Louvre Museum, Apollo Gallery
If you wanted to know what it is like to be inside the most famous museum in the world, this exhibition will give you a little taste of it. The Gallery of Apollo, located above the Petite Galerie, was destroyed by fire in 1661 and rebuilt by Le Vau. In this virtual exhibition you can see the homage to the Sun King, Louis XIV.
There are also other exhibitions that we recommend such as Egyptian Antiquities and Remains of the Louvre Moat. To access, click here.
