On the occasion of the Bicentennial of the Museum in 2019, the Prado Museum continues the publication of its comic collection with a new title, this time by the author Sento.
In its two hundred years of history, the Prado Museum has been one of the unquestionable engines of our cultural life. The anecdotes that he has starred in such a long career are abundant and have not always reached the public. This volume brings together seven stories that bring us closer to their day to day and also to some extraordinary events. This comic also brings us closer to the bond that has been forged between the works of art that the Prado houses and the professionals who have the privilege of working in direct contact with them. A connection that has transcended this area to reach equally its visitors, who feel this bicentennial institution as their own.
