The Prado in Madrid have opened yet another exhibition this month celebrating the acquisition of several paintings made possible by the legacy of Carmen Sánchez García (d.2016). García, a school teacher who had connections with the museum, left over 750,000 euros to the institution with the proviso that the money would be spent on acquisitions or restoration projects. The museum has purchased several paintings with the money, including artists not previously represented in the collection. Some of the highlights include works by Alonso Berruguete, Mariana de la Cueva, Gabriel Antonio Corvoysier, François Clouet (pictured), Adriaen Thomaszoon Key and María Blanchard.
