Purse "Les chefs-d’œuvre du Musée du Prado" exhibition

During the Spanish Civil War, the Museo del Prado's collections were in serious danger and some were evacuated to Geneva, where in 1939 an exhibition was held with some of its most emblematic works, such as Velázquez's portrait of Queen Mariana of Austria, which was used in the exhibition poster that is partially reproduced in this useful purse.
