Earlier this month, the Museo del Prado and Fundación AXA announced that their new exhibition of work by 19th century Spanish artist Mariano Fortuny would include twelve works that have never yet been on public display.

The exhibition is unprecedented in that it will display 169 of Fortuny’s works, 67 of which have never been on display away from their regular collection and 12 of which have never been on public display at all. A catalogue including 400 illustrations will also be available.

Under the direction of curator Javier Barón, the exhibit is arranged to display Fortuny’s work as a painter, printmaker, and draftsman as well as exploring his development as an artist.
