WWF raises awareness on climate change thanks to Prado’s collection

Museo del Prado (Prado Museum) recently collaborated on a project with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) designed to coincide with the 2019 UN Climate Change Conference in Madrid.

Masterpieces from the museum’s collection were graphically adapted to reflect the spectacular effects of climate change. Rising sea levels, barren rivers, and refugee camps transform paintings to raise awareness on the current climate catastrophe.

Paintings by three Spanish artists (Francisco de Goya, Diego Velázquez, and Joaquín Sorolla) and one Flemish Renaissance painter (Joachim Patinir) were chosen for the project by WWF and museum experts.
