The Seville Museum of Fine Arts was founded as the “Museum of Paintings” by Royal Decree on 16 September 1835, with works from convents and monasteries confiscated by the liberal government of Mendizábal. This art gallery is considered one of the most important in Spain and through this interactive virtual tour we can access in a comfortable and quick way to a large part of its permanent exhibitions on religious-themed paintings, mostly belonging to the Baroque style as a concept of life and at the same time expression of art. The following resource provides a digital presentation of the Baroque masters, highlighting well-known works by Francisco Pacheco, Zurbarán and Murillo.
