Next door to the austere Museo de Bellas Artes in Cordoba is a gallery devoted to the work of Julio Romero de Torres, an early 20th century local artist who is sometimes known as "the king of kitsch". The sober lighting and darkly decorated rooms give the impression of a bordello, which is not entirely inappropriate given many of the... More

We were staying in the building right in front of the museum, so we decided to visit, one morning. I love the artist's work, there was a lot of information about his career, how he saw life and death, what inspired him. Very interesting! BUT the lighting is terrible. It reflects off the oil paintings and you have to stand... More

The museum unfortunately doesn't allow photography but the paintings are wonderful. It is great to see some of the painters equipment as well. The faces are particularly well painted with the character of the individuals coming through the paint.

small and intimate. i love de Torres' work, and his beautiful portrayal of women. a little hard to find and not that big but is a fantastic collection of his work. lost my phone there, and a funny adventure later, we managed to collect it from a lovely Museum worker who took it upon himself to hang on to it...

We were not acquainted with the artist and were thrilled to see his wonderful work. The notices in the gallery are written in English which made a change and was very helpful. Absolutely delighted that we did not miss this on our trip.

I had not come across the artist Julio Romero but this gallery was included in an excellent multi venue ticket (along with Alcazar, the baños and others). He is a local artist from early 20th century who brought together a number of styles including impressionism, modernism and symbolism. His focus on women including a pair "The Sin" and "The Grace",... More

This little museum is at the east side of Plaza del Potro, near the Mezquita. Romero de Torres was known for his portraits of gypsies. My favorite was "naranjas y limones" - oranges and lemons

It is always a delight to visit a museum that houses the work of a single artist. And this artist is a one-off. The museum is in what was his house and the house is amazing, as is the delightful courtyard and fountain in front of it.
