  • Stimulating and imaginative presentation of one of the world’s finest museums
  • First in Scala’s 4-Fold series aimed at highlighting collections for a younger audience
  • Appeals to both on-site visitor, tourist, or anyone wanting to learn more about art and artists


This is the first title in Scala’s 4-fold series that is designed to appeal to children, using innovative fold-out sections to highlight and explain the most popular works in the Prado. Produced in conjunction with Bank Street College, US experts in child development, this is a delightful presentation of the Prado’s collections, engaging young readers through a series of stimulating questions and interesting facts. The book is divided into seven imaginatively laid-out sections, including Royal Families, The Holy Family, and Play and Recreation. It draws on paintings by Goya, Velázquez, El Greco, Rubens, Titian, Sorolla, Rembrandt and many more to illustrate themes in art. This is an excellent example of how to introduce great art to a younger audience in an exciting and stimulating way.
