1st Annual Open House for Print & Drawing Collections (Madrid)

Organized by the Gabinete de la Sociedad de Amigos del Dibujo y la Estampa (Office of the Society of Friends of Prints and Drawings), next Friday, May 26, 2017, will be the first Open House hosted by university and museum collections of Prints and Drawings in Madrid.

For the first time lovers of the arts and any citizen can access these "chambers of wonders" to explore the rich heritage of drawings and prints which, out of concern for conservation, are not often on view to the general public.

You can admire works on paper by many of the great masters of art from the fifteenth to the twenty-first century in the study room of the collections where they are housed thanks to the meticulous and attentive work of their conservators and curators at the following participating collections:

Museo Nacional del Prado

Patrimonio Nacional

Museo Cerralbo

Museo del Romanticismo

Biblioteca Lázaro Galdiano

Museo Casa de la Moneda - FNMT

Calcografía Nacional

Museo Naval de Madrid

Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Madrid

Museo de Historia de Madrid

Universidad Complutense Facultad de Bellas Artes de Madrid

Museo ABC de Dibujo e Ilustración

How to Register
In order to participate in the Open House, you must complete the online form available via the External Link below.

Simply select the Museum Collection that you want to visit and fill out the form before the deadline that ends on May 22nd. The telephone number and email are essential to confirm registration, because for security reasons most of the offices are located in areas restricted to the public. Attendance is limited and each collection will have to confirm your reservation in each session.

With each application all attendees will receive an invitation to GABINETE, a related art fair and conference that is being celebrated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid (May 25-28, 2017).
