The Museum of Fine Arts of Seville, also known as the ‘Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla’, is considered to be one of the most important art museums in Spain. It is located in a former convent in the heart of Seville and primarily features a large collection of works by notable Spanish artists such as Murillo and Zurbarán.

Highlights

The museum’s collection contains a huge array of works by prominent European painters, including many Spanish artists. One of its most famous collections is the large group of religious paintings and still lifes by Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbarán (Wikipedia Article). It also features several works by notable Spanish artists Juan de Valdés Leal and Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, as well as the famous Portrait of Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer. This renowned painting of Spanish poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, who is honored with a beautiful memorial in Seville’s Maria Luisa Park, was painted by his brother Valeriano, who was a famous painter and graphic artist of his time.

Many other famous artists are represented within the museum’s extensive collections, including El Greco, Diego Velázquez, Juan de Mesa, and Pietro Torrigiano. The museum is also known for its striking architecture, since the former convent it is located in contains beautiful patios and impressive arched hallways that further enhance the beauty of the artwork on display.
