Spain’s Prado Museum’s Delightful Paintings-and-Music Iniciative 1

sonidos museo pradoLast year around this time the Prado Museum, coinciding with the International Music Day, launched a series of videos on YouTube featuring singular paintings and contemporaneous musical compositions associated with them. The result which they called “The Sound of Painting in the Prado Museum,” is a collection of  these musical videos. It’s like finding the family jewels at the bottom of the sugar bowl.

The seven videos presented here are a sample of what’s available, since researchers  have identified some 600 paintings (out of the total of some 8,000 in the museum’s collection) related to music and dance susceptible to the same treatment.

If  you love painting and music you’re in for a treat. This playlist will show all seven brief videos, one after the other.
