This exhibition is part of a continued collaboration between the Georgia Museum of Art and Bob Jones University Museum and Gallery in Greenville, South Carolina, and provides visitors with the opportunity to see works by premiere Spanish baroque painters such as Francisco de Zurbarán, Bartolomé Murillo, Pedro Orrente and others. Viewers will be immersed in a selection of paintings that uphold the tenets of Catholic Counter-Reformation Art illustrative of the struggle between the Catholic church and the rise of the Protestant Reformation in Europe, which dominated the art scene in 17th-century Spain.
