To the 200. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its opening, the world-famous prado museum in madrid will show a rough special exhibition of more than 300 drawings by the spanish painter and graphic artist francisco de goya (1746-1828) starting tuesday.

The works come from numerous private and public collections around the world as well as from the prado itself. The show offers a "unique and unrepeatable opportunity" to trace goya’s entire oeuvre chronologically, from his early works and the italian sketchbook to the late drawings made in bordeaux during the last years of his life, the museum says.

With more than 8,600 paintings, drawings, prints and up to 700 sculptures, the exhibition that opened on 19.
