Queen Letizia brings back Pedro del Hierro shirt dress to mark the 40th anniversary of the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado
The Queen of Spain inaugurated the exhibition 'Forty years of friendship. Donations from the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado' at Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid.
On the 40th anniversary of the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado, it recognises and pays tribute to all the Friends who have given their support to the Museum and whose example will serve as a stimulus for new donations. Since its creation, in 1980, the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado not only collaborates in enriching the Prado's heritage but also fosters a better knowledge of its collections through a complete program of activities.
Her Majesty received a guided tour of the exhibition accompanied by the curator, Alberto Pancorbo. The exhibition consists of 36 works, including three by; Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Goya and Pablo Picasso, all of whom are also closely linked to the Museo Nacional del Prado. Before leaving the Queen held a meeting with the members of the Board of Trustees.
