Spanish with English subtitles

The Sevillian Baroque master painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, underwent a calculated spoliation that scattered most of his work around the world’s top museums. Murillo’s Last Journey follows the enthralling journey of one of his most celebrated pieces, “The young beggar,” from Paris to Seville in the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his birth.

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, will counterweigh his figure with that of his comrade Velázquez, reclaim and explain his legacy, and talk about his links with the history of the city (and with present-day Seville), while showing, in passing, the inner workings of the museum and its professions.

Notes on Film

“With this project, we want for non-specialists to understand Murillo’s figure in a different way. That of a very modern painter for his time, master of a prodigious technic and able to  communicated, as very few knew how, feelings and hopes, and who revolutionized painting elevating it to levels never reached till then.” –  José Manuel Gómez Vidal,
