Zurbarán. A New Perspective

Exhibition highlighting the work of Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664), spanning his career from his earliest commissions to key paintings from his mature period.

The Museo Thyssen Bornemisza displays previously unexhibited and recently rediscovered paintings by the artist who was a contemporary of Velázquez during Spain's Golden Age and is best remembered for his dimly-lit depictions of monks, nuns and martyrs.

The exhibition examines all aspects of Zurbarán’s oeuvre from mythological compositions and portraits to his extensive representation of religious works.

Also on display are paintings by his most talented pupils and his son Juan de Zurbarán, known for his sophisticated still lifes.

Tues-Sun 10.00-19.00.
