Wednesday 28 February 2018Monday 21 May 2018

Exhibition of self-portraits by Spanish Golden Age painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, best-known for his religious paintings and his depictions of street children. This exhibition marks the 400th anniversary of his birth and reunites the two known Self Portraits: Murillo in his thirties from the Frick Collection, New York (about 1650-5) and the other from the National Gallery Collection showing him about twenty years older. Approximately ten additional works are on show, including other paintings by Murillo and later reproductions of the two self-portraits that reflect their fame in Europe. Organised by The National Gallery, London and The Frick Collection, New York.
