From June 21, 2018 to January 13, 2019, and in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the birth of this Sevillian painter, we can enjoy the exhibition of Murillo in the Archivo de Indias.
Year Murillo in the Archivo de Indias
This exhibition will show three works by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, which have been donated by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando: La Magdalena penitente and Éxtasis de San Francisco de Asís, which have been restored before the exhibition by the Institute of Cultural Heritage of Spain (IPCE) of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, and the third work exhibited will be Resurrección del Señor, which will be restored once this exhibition ends.
A new exhibition will be added in the autumn with another work by Murillo also donated by the Royal Academy of San Fernando, San Diego de Alcalá dando de comer a los pobres.
The Exhibition of Murillo in the Archivo de Indias is part of what is called the Social Alliance for Culture, which aims to enrich the cultural offer of the country, thanks to the collaboration between institutions and administrations.
This exhibition is part of the planned programming around the figure of Murillo. Other initiatives within this programming would be the exhibition in the Espacio de Santa Clara or the routes through the city.
Four centuries of Spanish engineering overseas
Another exhibition that will be exhibited in the Archivo de Indias that will coincide for a few months with Murillo's will be Four centuries of Spanish engineering overseas: XVI-XIX century, available until September 30, 2018.
The exhibition will deal with the different engineering works carried out in America during four centuries by Spanish engineers, a legacy of hydraulic works, bridges, communications, roads, port, defensive and naval engineering,..., which demonstrates the great contribution from Spain to the engineering sector over the centuries.
