Arts & Culture: Whether you are an art connoisseur or just looking for a breezy way to take in as much as possible at Madrid's Prado Museum, it is likely going to take more than one trip to see all the wonderful exhibits throughout the galleries. So, the museum has devised three culturally correct time-management tours for patrons to consider. There are one-, two-, and three-hour routes that cover most of important artists from the museum's permanent collection.

Visitors adhering to the recommended routes see 15, 30, or 50 masterpieces of European art. Classics on display include The Annunciation by Fra Angelico; Christ Washing the Disciples' Feet by Tintoretto; The Descent from the Cross by Rogier van der Weyden; The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymous Bosch; and The Three Graces by Rubens. Major Spanish artists include Las Meninas by Velázquez; Jacob's Dream by Ribera; and The Third of May: the Executions on Príncipe Pío by Goya.

Upcoming shows include Rembrandt, History Painter, from October 15 to January 6, 2009. Since the museum has but one Rembrandt work of its own, it has borrowed 30 paintings and five prints from various American and European museums. The exhibit focuses on Rembrandt's narrative works. The Renaissance Revival, which is the largest gathering of Renaissance artists ever shown at one exhibition in Spain, runs through September 7, 2008.
