American Express supports American Friends to fund a new exhibit design for The Spinners by Velázquez

The American Express Foundation makes an important contribution to American Friends of the Prado Museum to fund a new exhibit installation for The Spinners by Velázquez at the Prado Museum.

The specifically designed installation will recover the original composition of the masterpiece as created by Velázquez and hide the later additions which distort the perception of the work.

Incorporating the latest innovations in preventative conservation, The Spinners will also benefit from additional measures to protect the canvas in case of emergency.

American Friends thanks the generosity and commitment of American Express to support the efforts to improve the presentation of the Prado's magnificent permanent collection.
