In celebration of the premiere of Cherubini's opera Medea at the Teatro Real on September 28th and 29th, you have the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour of the museum's collections on the theme of 'The Image of Women.' Tragic and captivating, Medea is renowned for the historic interpretations by Maria Callas, to whom this production is dedicated in commemoration of the centenary of her birth.

Come and discover this tour, which offers a panoramic and cross-sectional view of the representation of the female image in Western painting from the Renaissance to the 20th century. Virtue, ideal beauty, sensuality, emancipation, illness, female self-portraits, women as temptation and femme fatale, modernist artists and intellectuals, and muses are some of the topics around which the tour is structured.
