Real academia de bellas artes de san fernando en español

La Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, aunque a menudo se la denomina la «otra galería de arte» de Madrid, está lejos de serlo. En su papel de Real Academia de Bellas Artes ha formado y alimentado a un increíble número de artistas españoles a lo largo de los siglos. Entre sus alumnos más ilustres se encuentran Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Antonio López García, Juan Luna, Oscar de la Renta y Fernando Botero. En vida, Francisco Goya fue director de la prestigiosa institución.
Creada por orden del rey Fernando VI a mediados del siglo XVIII, la academia se trasladó unos veinte años después, bajo el reinado de Carlos III, a su actual ubicación en el Palacio de Goyeneche, en la calle Alcalá, a pocos minutos de la Puerta del Sol. El palacio, diseñado originalmente por José Benito Churrigera para la familia Goyeneche en 1724, fue reformado en 1773 para uso académico por Diego de Villanueva. Fue durante la reforma cuando se modificó la fachada barroca original por la neoclásica que vemos hoy.
