Celebrating the relationship between the Spanish Baroque Painter Murillo and his patron, the canon of Seville cathedral.

Painter of cherubs and demure virgins, Murillo is one of Spain’s greatest Baroque painters. An artist who brought sentimentality and light to a forbidding era.

This exhibition celebrates Murillo’s religious virtuosity by transforming the gallery into a Spanish church, hanging pictures as they would have been seen in the Santa Maria la Blanca in Seville.

Most of the paintings on display originated in the collection of Murillo’s great friend and patron, Don Justino de Neve, the canon of Seville cathedral. The show centres on the productive partnership between these two men at the height of Murillo’s career.
