The Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in Cuba is proposing a new contest. Participants should only take a selfie with the self-portrait of the Spanish painter Francisco de Goya (1746-1828), which dates back to 1815, exhibited these days in the Universal Art Building of the National Museum of Fine Arts, in Havana.
Until December 15, all Cubans who wish may take a selfie with the portrait, with comments on the social media in the #selfieconGoya publication, as announced on the institution’s official Facebook page.
The painting is being exhibited in Havana as a loan on the occasion of the bicentennial of Madrid’s Prado Museum.
The self-portrait, painted by Goya in 1815, when he was close to turning 70, arrived in the Cuban capital for the 500th anniversary of the city and the first official visit to Cuba of the king and queen of Spain.
