The Renaissance period saw the uprising of the Spanish Empire and subsequently, the art in this period reflected the power and stature of the Monarchs of Spain. It was during this period that the Museo Nacional del Prado was formed to showcase several royal sculptures and paintings. Eventually, the museum expanded and included works of artists like Francisco Goya, Hieronymus Bosch, El Greco, and many more influential artists in the period.
Almost 200 years, the old museum got its origin in the art collections of the 16th and 17th-century Spanish monarchs. Most parts of the museum are dedicated to paintings and the museum is believed to assemble painters, not just paintings. The rest feature photographs and sculptures. The sheer range of works from religious depictions to portraits and detailed sculptures are what draws the crowds into what has been ranked as one of the best art museums in the world.
