Twitter campaign gets stored Prado painting on show
04 October 2019 @ 19:28

The Prado Museum has announced that 'El Cid', a spectacular oil on canvas by French artist Rosa Bonheur, which has been in storage at the museum for over 100 years, is now finally on show.

The painting was a gift to the Prado from Ernest Gambart in 1879, the same year the work was completed, but it has remained in storage ever since, except for a brief outing in 2017 as part of a temporary exhibition.

A Twitter campaign calling for the work to be put on show was launched by graphic designer Luis Pastor at the end of December 2017. Thousands of Twitter users joined his campaign using the hashtag '#UnaRosaParaElPrado' which reached its peak popularity last July.
