Español: El Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla, situado en Andalucía, (España), fue instituido en septiembre del año 1835 e inaugurado oficialmente en 1841. Actualmente es considerada una de las pinacotecas más importantes de España. Se ubica en la llamada Plaza del Museo, que está presidida por una escultura dedicada a Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. Es un museo fundamental para conocer tanto la pintura barroca sevillana, especialmente de Francisco de Zurbarán, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo y Juan de Valdés Leal, como la pintura andaluza del siglo XIX.
English: The Museum of Fine Arts of Seville or Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla is a museum in Seville, (Spain), a collection of mainly Spanish visual arts from the medieval period to the early 20th century, including a choice selection of works by artists from the so-called Golden Age of Sevillian painting during the 17th century, such as Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Francisco de Zurbarán, Francisco de Herrera the younger, and Juan de Valdés Leal. The building itself was built in 1594, but the museum was founded in 1839, after the desamortizacion or shuttering of religious monasteries and convents, collecting works from across the city and region. The building it is housed in was originally home to the convent of the Order of the Merced Calzada de la Asunción, founded by St. Peter Nolasco during the reign of King Ferdinand III of Castile. Extensive remodeling in the early 17th century was led by the architect Juan de Oviedo y de la Bandera.
