Bartolomé Esteban Murillo – Spanish Baroque Painter
Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617-1682) was a Spanish Baroque painter who painted scenes of everyday life in seventeenth century Seville, Spain. He also painted many religious themes including the Annunciation, Madonna and Child, and the Immaculate Conception. In the centuries after his death, he had a great reputation in Europe (even more so than Velázquez) and considered the last great painter of the Spanish Golden Age. Murillo’s paintings bridge the dark simplicity of Spain’s early Baroque artists and the sensuality of the approaching Rococo era. Our collection of patterns includes a wide selection of his art including A Girl and Her Duenna, Beggar Boys eating Grapes and Melon, The Flower Girl, St. Lesmes, The Little Fruit Seller, Young Boys Playing Dice, and a self portrait.
