Nuevas salas del Tesoro del delfín en el Museo del Prado

Leticia Azcue, Jefe de Conservación de Escultura y Artes Decorativas del Museo Nacional del Prado, comenta la nueva instalación del Tesoro del Delfín.

La colección del Tesoro del Delfín, que llegó al Museo del Prado en 1839, se expone en su totalidad en el Toro Norte, situado en el cuerpo central de la planta segunda del cuerpo Norte o de Goya del edificio Villanueva.

Se trata de un espacio circular en el que se ha instalado una vitrina curva continua de 40 metros de longitud que cuenta con los máximos requerimientos técnicos de conservación e incluye soportes y sistemas de iluminación diseñados específicamente para cada una de las piezas teniendo en cuenta sus formas y materiales.

El Tesoro del Delfín está formado por un conjunto de los tradicionalmente llamados “vasos ricos” que perteneció al Gran Delfín Luis de Francia (1661-1711) y que, tras su fallecimiento, heredó su hijo Felipe V (1683-1746), primer Borbón español. Se trata de una colección única en España, equiparable a otros grandes tesoros dinásticos europeos, tanto por su calidad como por su valor intrínseco y su belleza, además de ser un importante ejemplo del coleccionismo europeo de artes suntuarias en los siglos XVI y XVII, imagen también del poder y prestigio regios.

Para la consecución de este gran proyecto, que ha contado con el asesoramiento científico de Letizia Arbeteta –la mayor especialista en el Tesoro-, se ha realizado la revisión científica y técnica de todos los vasos, la restauración de cada uno de ellos y un minucioso estudio documental e histórico que ha dado como resultado nuevas atribuciones.

NEW INSTALLATION OF THE DAUPHIN’S TREASURE

Leticia Azcue, Senior Curator of Sculpture and Decorative Arts at the Museo Nacional del Prado, comments the new galleries of The Dauphin’s Treasure.

This collection, which entered the Museo del Prado in 1839, is now exhibited in its entirety in the so-called “Toro Norte”, located in the central section of the second floor of the North or Goya Wing in the Villanueva Building.

The new room is a circular space with a continuous curved case measuring 40 metres long. The room is equipped with the most advanced conservation technology, while the supports for the works and the lighting system have been specially designed to adapt to the specific shape and material of each object.

The Dauphin’s Treasure comprises a group of luxury vessels that belonged to Louis, the Grand Dauphin of France (1661-1711), and were inherited after his death by his son Philip V (1683-1746), the first Spanish Bourbon. This is a unique collection in Spain and is comparable to the other great European dynastic treasures in terms of both the quality and intrinsic value and beauty of the objects and its importance as an example of European collecting of the sumptuary arts in the 16th and 17th centuries, offering an image of royal power and prestige.

This major project, which has benefited from the academic advice of Letizia Arbeteta, the leading expert on the Treasure, has involved a complete scientific and technical assessment of all the vessels, the restoration of each one of them and a detailed documentary and art-historical study that has given rise to new attributions.
