Spanish and Russian Museums to Exchange Artwork

Major art news from both Spain and Russia, courtesy of the AFP: Spain's Prado Museum and Russia's Hermitage Museum will swap works, including masterpieces by Goya and Rembrant, as part of a cultural exchange between the two nations. (No word yet on whether Las Meninas, one of the Prado's most famous pieces, will also make the trip to the Hermitage.)

About 66 works from the Spanish museum will be put on display at the Hermitage between February 25 and May 29 as part of the "Prado at the Hermitage" exhibit.

In return 170 works from the Hermitage will be put on display at the Prado between November 8 and March 26, 2012.
