MURILLO, Bartolomé Esteban
(b. 1617, Sevilla, d. 1682, Sevilla)

Immaculate Conception

Oil on canvas
Walters Art Museum, Baltimore

Murillo painted over thirty versions of the Immaculate Conception, each with its own peculiarities, unique grace, richness of detail, and delicate colours. However, conventionalism can be observed in some of these paintings.
