The Wallace collection displays its collection of eight major paintings by Bartolomé Estebán Murillo this spring.
B. E. Murillo, The Charity of Saint Thomas of Villanueva, c. 1670
By kind permission of the trustees of the Wallace Collection
They are part of an exhibition celebrating the Spanish Golden Age timed to coincide with the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s investigation of the artist’s late works. There is a special addition – an important loan from Wrotham Park, Rest on the Flight into Egypt, which will be reunited with three other religious masterpieces by the Spanish artist that were brought to London in 1805 by the agent William Buchanan.
There will also be pieces from Murillo’s workshop and the artist’s contemporaries Francisco Menesses Osorio and Juan Simón Gutiérrez.
