“Good Museum”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

The Museo de Julio Romero de Torres has probably the largest collection of Julio Romero de Torres paintings in Spain. Julio Romero de Torres was one of the best modern Spanish painters, known for his sensual portraits of women. His father was the famous Impressionist painter Rafael Romero Barros. Julio learned art from his father, who founded and directed the Bellas Artes Museum in Cordoba. In 1906 he went to work and study in Madrid. He painted Vivadoras del Amor for the National Exhibition of Fine Arts, but it was rejected because it was considered too scandalous, with its realism. He also learned much about art during his travels in Europe. His style of painting has been classified as the symbolist style. After the First World War he worked as a professor of Clothing Design in the School of Fine Arts in Madrid. In 1922 he traveled to Argentina with his brother until he got sick and had to return to Cordoba. He deteriorated and died there. His museum in Cordoba occupies his former residence and is filled with his paintings, mostly of women.

“Very few but very beautiful paintings”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

The building is small and beautiful - just as the number of paintings were few but gorgeous!. The theme was flamenco and the faces/expressions were extremely well captured! Definitely worth seeing!

“Enchanting gallery and collection”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

We were most pleased to have visited this museum, knowing nothing about the artist. His bold colours and strong figures did not take away from the gentleness and tenderness of his subjects and themes.
