The partnership between Arte Down and the Museo del Prado speaks of the infinite number of viewpoints offered and experienced by art, of the myriad feelings invoked when contemplating a picture. For the last three years, the Museum, along with the Arte Down Foundation, has been holding a competition inspired by the works in its collection, giving rise, as a result, to new visions, impressive works which serve as inspiration for some of the items on offer in the Prado Shop.
On this occasion, the Arte Down artists were invited to immerse themselves in the work of Bosch to celebrate the exhibition commemorating the fifth centenary of the Dutch master's death. The winner of the competition was Roberto Salcedo, who reinterpreted all the details of the Garden of Earthly Delights with his imagination, embodying them in the work My garden of delights, in oil on board.

Ten works from among those submitted have been selected and, for the first time, reproductions of them can be ordered in “Prints on Demand”, choosing from among the different options of size, medium, framing and finish.

By purchasing products illustrated with these works, you will be collaborating in this unique charity project which focuses on the social inclusion, autonomy and personal development of artists with Down syndrome and who are members of the Arte Down project.
Arte Down is a project from the Madrid Down Syndrome Foundation, created to disseminate the skills of its artists and to foster social and labour market inclusion through art. With partnerships such as the one established with the Museo del Prado, artists with different skills can showcase their work and open up new horizons, while society can learn to enjoy and appreciate their art. It is truly worthwhile discovering the beauty and originality of their work.
