Julio Romero de Torres was born in Cordoba in 1874 and he died there in 1930. Romero deTorres 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. He enjoyed painting Gypsy women. He had his very unique style and his paintings are easily distinguished from paintings by other painters. He is considered as one of the best Andalusian artists. The museum has more than 50 of his paintings. One of the interesting things about this museum is that it also contains some of his furniture, photographs, and the bust of Romero de Torres by the great sculptor Mariano Benlliure.
