Scenes from the Prado

We're in Madrid while I attend meetings. Last night and again today we were fortunate to visit the Museo del Prado. The collection is amazing, and our visit overlapped with the exhibition of the Treasures of the Hispanic Society of America. I was able to snap a few photos, see below.
Antonio Muñoz Degrain, Before the Wedding, 1882.

A highlight for me were the paintings by Goya and Sorolla. The Hispanic Society of America exhibition included Sorolla's outstanding After the Bath. I could not snap a photo but I do include an image below via Columbia University.
