The authors "show us the Prado as a museum with one of the most beautiful and comprehensive collections of the world but also, and above all, as a mirror to reflect the changing tastes of those who commissioned the paintings, and of the collectors through the centuries and the spirit of the times. Special attention is given to the cultural, social, and political background of the period in which the works were painted, together with the different purpose and significance they have had in the past five hundred years."
