Celebrating The Earth's Beauty - 17C Spanish Flower Seller

Bartolomé Estéban Murillo (1617-1682) The Flower Girl

Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617-1682) was a Spanish Baroque painter. Although he is best known for his religious works, Murillo also produced a number of paintings of contemporary women and children. His lively, realist portrait of this flower girl & other street children constitute an extensive and appealing record of the everyday life of his times.
