4 hour layover in Madrid, enough time to see the Prado?

We will be traveling to Spain in Sept. We have a 4 hour layover in Madrid before catching our flight to Barcelona. We will only be spending a night in Madrid, but it will be on a Monday, so the Prado will be closed. I'm hoping that 4 hours will be enough time to get to the Prado and make our flight to Barcelona?

What would be the best way to do this? We arrive at Barajas T1 (US Airways) and depart T4 to Barcelona.

Thank you!

I'm assuming the 4 hrs is the time between flights, and that your bags will be taken care of. But you still have to check in and hour or so early (they probably suggest even more than an hour) for the Barcelona flight, so that leaves you with < 3 hrs. Figure about an hour of travel time (both ways, minimal traffic, if during rush hours it will take more time), which leaves you < 2 hrs for the museum. It's not impossible, but it will be rushed.
