Guided tour of the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville, the second most important art gallery in Spain
With my guided tour, we will enjoy a collection of masterpieces that are part of the history of art. Brushstrokes by Murillo, Valdés Leal, and Velázquez, as well as sculptures by Torrigiano and Juan de Mesa, make up part of the journey through the history of art that takes us from the Middle Ages to the 20th century.
History of the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville
The building we see today, the former 17th-century Mercedarian convent, is considered one of the most beautiful examples of Andalusian Mannerism, the result of several transformations over the centuries.
What to see in the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville
The museum’s vestibule surprises us with the ceramic panels that cover its walls, from the altarpiece-façades of the confiscated Sevillian convents, a varied repertoire represented in the Patio del Aljibe, the Patio de los Bojes, or the set of the façade of the Convent of El Pópulo that decorates the vestibule.”
“Walking through the interior of the museum is like strolling through its courtyards, such as the Aljibe Patio. From there, you can access the Patio de los Bojes, and to the right, the Main Cloister. At the center of all these spaces, we find the Grand Staircase. It is essential to highlight, last but not least, the church, sober but of grand proportions, where we can admire the genius of Seville, Murillo.
Artistic Itinerary at the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville
We begin our journey through the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville in the Middle Ages, continuing through works of Spanish and European Renaissance. We then step into the spectacular Baroque era, extensively represented by masterpieces from the Sevillian artist Bartolomé Esteban Murillo including his famous ‘Virgin of the Napkin’ and ‘Saints Justa and Rufina,’ which decorate the convent church. We also encounter unique works by Zurbarán such as his ‘Virgin of the Caves,’ and not to forget Valdés Leal Valdés Leal, who has a dedicated room, as well as Roelas with his ‘Martyrdom of Saint Andrew.’
The 19th and 20th centuries are equally represented in the art gallery with works by Antonio María Esquivel, the genre painting of Gonzalo Bilbao, and the new European trends with Gustavo Bacarisas and his chromatic richness.
Undoubtedly, our guided tour of the Museum of Fine Arts offers a very special perspective on the history of art, with a collection of artworks surpassed only by the Prado Museum in Madrid.
