Instituted in September of 1835 and official inaugurated in 1841. It is located in the so-called Plaza del Museo, which is presided over by a sculpture dedicated to Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. It is a fundamental museum for getting to know Sevillian Baroque painting, especially the masters, Zurbarán, Murillo and Valdés Leal, as well as 19th century Andalusian painting. The building that currently houses the Museum was originally built as a convent of La Merced, for the Order of La Merced Calzada de la Asunción, founded by San Pedro Nolasco during the reign of Fernando III.
Highlights of the collection include work from the 17th century, including the works of the most representative Spanish painters, such as Murillo, Velásquez, Zurbarán, and Valdés Leal.
