Bartolomé E. Murillo
On 01/01/1618 Bartolomé Esteban Perez was baptized in Seville. Ten year old came after the death of his father in the doctrine of Juan del Castillo. His earliest works, however, testify with their austere naturalism of the influence of art Juan de las Roelas and Francisco de Herrera the Elder Important impetus comes from his painting of the art Francisco de Zurbarán and Jusepe Ribera.
The eleven pictures of legend for the cloister of the former monastery of S. Francisco, Sevilla were the first independent work of 1645-46. New orders gained him to create his special way through soft lighting, a charming atmosphere. For the Cathedral of Seville, he painted three paintings.
In addition to the religious pictures, Murillo designed but also genre paintings, which were in great demand. The subtle light and shade Guide and a warm colour scheme made this painting to sought-after works of art.
Around 1650, Murillo received important suggestions from the works of Raphael, Peter Paul Rubens and Anthonis van Dycks. Soft contours, soft-toned colours and the Golden veil of light give the title "estilo vaporoso" his distinctive style.
The success of the painter was underlined by his appointment to the President of the Academy of Arts of Seville he co-founded 1660.
At the age of 64 years, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo died on the 3.4.1682 in his hometown. He was the principal representative of the Baroque and one of the most famous Spanish painter. Many of his works can be seen today in the great European museums.
