MADRID.- In a difficult and risky mission, a
committee formed by the persons responsible of the European and American museums
worked together to save Spanish Works of art during that country’s Civil
Works of art from the Prado Museum, the Academy of Fine Arts in
San Fernando, the Escorial, the Royal Palace, National Library and those owned
by the Church as well as those from prívate collections, started a journey that
took them through different Spanish cities and ended up in Geneva, where they
were protected until the end of the war.
