Event description

Description

Born in Seville in 1617, the baroque artist Murillo is best known for his religious works. He also produced a considerable number of paintings of contemporary women and children. The lively, realistic portraits constitute an extensive and appealing record of the everyday life of his times. Murillo had many pupils and followers and, prior to the 19th century, his work was more widely known than that of any other Spanish artist. Bernadette Petti is the curator of The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle.

This is the 3rd lecture in a season of talks focusing on Spanish painting from the 16th to 20th centuries. You might also like to consider these lectures:-
