At this moment this category is divided into five subcategories:

Category:Paintings in the Prado Museum by century‎

Category:Paintings in the Prado Museum by country

Category:Paintings in the Prado Museum by genre‎

Category:Paintings in the Prado Museum by painter‎

Category:Paintings in the Prado Museum by period‎

However, for this to work properly, you have to take each painting and put them in each of these 5 categories. Otherwise people will not be able to find the painting they are looking for. For example Category:Artemisia by Rembrandt should be in Category:17th-century paintings in the Prado Museum, Category:Dutch paintings in the Prado Museum, Category:History paintings in the Prado Museum, Category:Paintings by Rembrandt in the Prado Museum, Category:Baroque paintings in the Prado Museum. The Prado owns thousands of paintings, so to do this for every painting this is quite a lot of work, and if you ask me, too much work. I suggest we stick to not more than one key: Paintings in the Prado by school, for example. This is the most simple and effective solution I can think of.
