Francisco de Zurbarán

RELIGIOUS ARTIST (1598 - 1664)

Francisco de Zurbarán was born in Extremadura but settled in Seville in 1629 where he had a very successful career accepting large commissions for the wealthy religious order.

He was in Madrid from 1634 - 6 in the service of King Philip IV and on his return to Seville he began painting commissions for Spanish American clients.

His famous series, Jacob and his Twelve Sons circa 1640 was destined for the New World but never got there and can now be found in two private collections in UK.
