For the first time in decades, see this series of works by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617–1682), one of the most celebrated painters of the Spanish Golden Age, hanging side by side in the National Gallery of Ireland. Six remarkable paintings depicting the parable of the Prodigal Son have been conserved and researched at the Gallery. Fascinating details uncovered during the conservation project and a number of related prints will be displayed alongside the series, revealing the secrets of the artistic process of this master storyteller.
