Synopsis: This book accompanies the first-ever exhibition of paintings by the 17th-century Spanish artist Bartolome Esteban Murillo in American collections. It takes a comprehensive view of the artist's work, including portraits, history paintings, religious images and genre paintings. Some of the works in the show are well known, for example Two Women at a Window in the National Gallery (Washington, D.C.)--which will be on the front of the jacket - and the Madonna and Child in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Others have rarely been seen before. All the paintings have been restored and photographed for this exhibition. The essays address not only the artist's stylistic development, but also other interesting topics such as the artist's work on unusual supports (stone, copper), his drawings, and new discoveries about painting practices in 17th-century Spain.

From Library Journal: This glossy catalog of a current museum exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum in Forth Worth, TX, showcases works by 17th-century Spanish Baroque master Murillo. A native of artistically independent Seville, Murillo was an opulent colorist who painted theatrically composed genre scenes and religious pictures in which the real world becomes infused with the spiritual. Until the late 19th century, when his reputation was eclipsed by Vel squez, Goya, and El Greco, he was seen as Spain's preeminent artistic product. But since then his pictures have fallen into disfavor, and he has received little critical attention. One reason certainly is a sentimentalism that at times verges on the saccharine. Unlike the now more popular Vermeer, for example, Murillo was not afraid to depict children (particularly in the context of the Holy Family) as pure innocence embodied. This catalog is limited to the works in the show, which is itself limited to paintings from collections in the United States. While this scope feels restrictive, the 34 paintings on view here do span the breadth of Murillo's creative life, forming a representative cross section. The catalog section of the book is preceded by six biocritical essays on Murillo and his legacy, all seeking to rehabilitate an artist who has suffered unfair neglect. A major book on an important painter, this is recommended for most larger libraries. Douglas F. Smith, Oakland P.L., CA
