Museum of Fine Arts,Delightful Spanish Art

A few days ago,I had the privilege of spending a delightful day at this art museum.It loved its outstanding collection of Spanish devotional paintings including fine works by Bartolome Bermejo,El Greco,Luis de Vargas,Francisco Zurbaran("Saint Hugo in the Refrectory"),Bartolome Murillo("Saints Justa and Rufino"),Jose Ribera("Saint James Major"),Alonso Cano,and Juan Valdes Leal.There were also especially fine devotional paintings by Frans Francken I,Martin de Vos,and Marcellus Coffermans.There were fine secular paintings,especially by Jose Villegas Cordero("Death of Maestro"),Jose Garcia Ramos("Malvaloca"),Gonzalo Bilbao,Nicolas Jiminez Alperiz("View of Seville"),and Ignacio Zuloaga.I also relished the temporary Julio Romero de Torres exhibit featuring some of his outstanding paintings like;"Lovesick"and "Trini's Grand-daughter.This museum has a nice atmosphere and the lighting in this art museum is excellent.

Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes de Sevilla

The museum is full of very eyecatching renaissance paintings. One of the earlier display rooms resembles a gothic church with huge pictures. Unfortunately I couldn't take a good picture in this light. There is one picture in particular which I spent a good ten minutes admiring; depicting Heaven and Hell.

The Museo de Bellas Artes has an excellent selection of works by Murillo (whose statue is in front of the building), Leal and Zubaran. Housed in the former Convent of Calced Mercedarians, the museum is focused on the Seville Painting School from around the 17th century. From Medieval Spanish Art, through Rnaissance art including El Greco and Cranach, rooms of alterpieces and then rooms dedicted to Murillo, Leal and Zuburan. Very low key and easy to enjoy.

Museo de Bellas Artes

I decided to check out Sevilla's Museum of Fine Arts because I had heard that is was the second best art museum in Spain behind only Madrid's Prado. I had also read that there was an admission fee for non-European Union residents, but I was ushered right in without paying (no complaints from me). The building is a beautiful former convent and the collection fills its walls with artwork by notable Spanish greats such as Murillo, Velasquez and El Greco.
