Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617 - 1642) was the youngest of 14 children born in the Seville area. The last name Murillo, with whom he often signed his works, is actually the surname of his maternal grandmother. Since his parents died when he was about 10 years old, he was placed under the guardianship of Juan Augustin Lagares, the husband of one of his sisters. Murillo began his art studies in Seville with a distant relative of his mother Juan del Castillo. In the family of his mother Maria Pérez there were many artists, such as Murillo's uncle the painter Antonio Pérez.

Murillo's early paintings were strongly influenced by Spanish painters such as Zurbarán , Jusepe de Ribera and Alonso Cano . Likewise, he used a strong realistic approach based on Italian tenebroso style. Seville was an important trading city at the time. This offered Murillo the opportunity to get to know the work of great painters from other countries. Especially the Flemish painters Rubens , Raffaell and van Dyck influenced Murillo's style. It is assumed that Murillo went to Madrid for further studies in 1642, at the age of 26. However, there is no record of the journey. He probably studied the works of Velázquez and various Venetian and Flemish painters from the royal collection there.

During the trip to Madrid, Murillo's style changed. The influence of Velázquez is particularly evident in the painting "The Young Beggar" (1645), for here Murillo moved from dark tenebroso to a much brighter, light-filled style. This was to be the first of a variety of images that contemporary women and children showed in Spain. For although he became known especially for his religious works, such as "Madonna and Child", "Maria Immaculata" or "The Flight to Egypt", Murillo painted far more frequently everyday motifs. Among these everyday scenes, especially the work "Two girls at the window" is known today. From about the middle of the 17th century he became one of the most famous and influential painters in Seville. He married in 1645 Beatriz Sotomayor y Cabrera. He had at least 10 or 11 children with her, many of whom probably died as children. He himself became 64 years old. © Meisterdrucke
