The Museum of Fine Arts owes its appearance to Fray Alonso de Monroy that in the seventeenth century encouraged the construction the new edifice by building one of the best examples of Mannerism Andaluz.
Since its transformation into a museum, the building has undergone three major reforms.
- The first completed in 1898,
- the second reform completed in 1945 when was opened the patio de las Conchas and the transfer of the baroque facade to the street Bailen and
- the third reform completed in 1993 and that gives it its current appearance.
The ground floor of the Museum of Fine Arts of Seville has five rooms starting with the oldest works of the fifteenth century in the room I, and ending with Murillo and the the great masters of the first half of the seventeenth century in the former monastery church and present room V.
The upper floor we have from the living room VI to XIV, in these rooms you can enjoy since the works of Murillo to the works of the artists of the early twentieth century. We emphasize on this floor, the room VIII with works of Valdés Leal, the room IX where we can see the works of European schools and the room X where we can see the works of Zurbarán.
