Writing the Prado

We’re proud to announce that Olga Tokarczuk has been selected as the third author to participate in the Writing the Prado residency programme. A joint initiative by The Prado and LOEWE FOUNDATION, the programme invites internationally renowned writers to engage with the museum’s collections and rich history as a source of inspiration for literary works that will be published by the museum and literary magazine Granta.

Olga Tokarczuk

Born in Sulechów, Poland in 1962 and now living in Wrocław, Olga Tokarczuk is one of Poland’s most celebrated authors. Her eight novels and three short story collections have won numerous awards and been translated in over 50 languages. In 2018, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
