Chris in Madrid studying the Masters
@ the Prado Museum
and the Reina Sofia - Art Galleries
I saw the advert for the course on Facebook and if I’m honest, I was initially more interested in the history of Spain side than in the art as I never really thought of myself as an art lover.
However, thanks to Karla’s excellent (and often wacky!) way of explaining the works and lives of the Spanish masters that so clearly inspire her, I came to appreciate the paintings too.
The course has opened my eyes to a whole new interest, so much so that on a recent trip to Montserrat my partner was quite surprised to hear me exclaiming “Wow! There are some Picasso’s and Dali’s in this museum – we HAVE to go in!!!”
Maybe I should enroll him on the next course!
Thank you, Karla
