December of 2017 will witness the 400th birthday of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617–1682), luminary of Golden Age Seville. The Meadows Museum is in possession of five of this star painter’s works, more paintings by him than any other museum in the United States. Viewers will be able to see these works installed together in a single gallery, surrounded by artworks by the Sevillian masters that Murillo counted among his closest colleagues and most fervent rivals. Each of these paintings dates to the museum’s founding collection, assembled by Algur H. Meadows himself. We invite you to share his enthusiasm for this artist and to enjoy anew the museum’s extraordinary collection of his paintings.
