October sees the opening of the Museum’s principal exhibition this season: Tears of Eros, an ambitious project devised and curated by Guillermo Solana, the Museum’s Artistic Director. Sponsored by Caja Madrid, the works on display will be divided between the Museum (Paseo del Prado, 8) and the Casa de las Alhajas (Plaza de San Martín, 1). Tears of Eros is an innovative analysis of the intimate relationship between the sexual impulse and death –Eros and Thanatos– in the visual arts.
