|Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes de Sevilla Plaza del Museo 9, Seville |
This lovely old convent off Calle de Alfonso XII houses one of the most important collections of Spanish art. A whole gallery is devoted to two paintings by El Greco, and works by Zurbarán are on exhibit; however, the devoutly religious paintings of the Seville-born Murillo are the highlight. An entire wing is given over to macabre paintings by the 17th-century artist Valdés Leal. His painting of John the Baptist's head on a platter includes the knife -- in case you don't get the point. The top floor, displaying modern paintings, is less interesting.
