Murillo’s Last Journey

Synopsis

The Sevillian Baroque master painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, underwent a calculated spoliation that scattered most of his work around the world’s top museums. Enrique Valdivieso, an Art History guru with expertise in 17th century paintings; Guillaume Kientz, curator of the Louvre Museum; and Gabriele Finaldi, director of the National Gallery of London, they all will counterweigh his figure with that of his comrade Velázquez, witnessing the round trip from Paris to Seville by one of his most celebrated pieces: “The young beggar”
