Prado to host Hermitage exhibition



An exhibition of European art from Russia's Hermitage Museum is to go on show at the Prado Museum in Madrid.

Works by Rembrandt and Caravaggio and items once belonging to Russia's tsars will be among around 120 items on show.

The Hermitage's director said there had "never been such an exhibition, of and about the Hermitage, outside Russia".

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said the collection represented "the pride and glory of civilisation's cultural heritage".

Artworks by Spanish artists Diego Velazquez, Pablo Picasso and Diego de Rivera will temporarily return home, flanked by famous pieces by Matisse, Cezanne and Kandinsky.

Faberge jewels and gold items dating from as early as the fifth Century BC will also be on display.
