Avance de la exposición El artel del poder.
La Real Armería y el retrato de corte.

El Arte del poder es una excepcional ocasión para poder contemplar juntas por primera vez una parte muy representativa de las obras del Museo del Prado y de la colección de armaduras de Patrimonio Nacional. Se trata de un proyecto expositivo inédito en el que se establece una comparación directa entre los retratos de corte pintados por los grandes maestros, como Tiziano y Rubens, y las piezas de armadura que vestían los monarcas para simbolizar su imagen de poder en el momento de máximo esplendor de la Corona española.

Treinta y cinco pinturas se enfrentan a veintisiete piezas y conjuntos de la Real Armería de Madrid -considerada, junto con la imperial de Viena, la mejor colección del mundo-, para narrar la evolución y el impacto que tuvo el retrato de corte entre los siglos XVI y XVIII. Cabe destacar la exhibición conjunta de Carlos V, a caballo en Mühlberg de Tiziano junto a la impresionante armadura ecuestre del emperador, auténtica obra maestra realizada por Desiderius Helmschmid, uno de los armeros más importantes del siglo XVI.

THE ART OF POWER
Arms, Armour and Paintings from the Spanish Court

The exhibition offers an exceptional opportunity to see an important selection of works from the Prado displayed for the first time alongside the collection of armour belonging to Patrimonio Nacional. This is an unprecedented concept for an exhibition and one that establishes a direct comparison between the court portraits painted by leading masters such as Titian and Rubens and the armour worn by Spanish monarchs that symbolised their power at the height of that monarchy’s splendour.

Following the exhibition The Art of Power. Royal Armor and Portraits from Imperial Spain, held at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, in 2009, in 2010 the Museo del Prado shows The Art of Power. Arms, Armour and Paintings from the Spanish Court. The exhibition comprises an outstanding selection of objects loaned by the Royal Armoury in Madrid, displayed alongside a major group of paintings that reveal how the great painters of the day emphasised arms and armour when representing the power of the Spanish monarchy from the Renaissance onwards. The Art of Power. Arms, Armour and Paintings from the Spanish Court provides a unique occasion to see a group of masterpieces that could only be brought together in the Prado, set within the context of the armed portrait.

Founded at the height of the Spanish monarchy’s international power and splendour, the Royal Armoury in Madrid is the oldest and one of the finest and most comprehensive in the world. Largely built up by the Emperor Charles V (1500-1558) and his son Philip II (1556-1598), it houses not only the personal arms and armour of the Spanish monarchs but also a number of military trophies and diplomatic and family gifts.
