“Good Museum”
Reviewed October 15, 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 October 10, 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 June 22, 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.

“Some Nice Paintings”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is worth looking at if you are in the área but is not that amazing. Very Spanish style religeous paintings levened by some attractive nudes.

“Sombre faces”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Romero de Torres specialised in sombre looking women wearing as few clothes as possible. After a time these become a trifle boring. The building itself promises considerable architectural promise from the outside, but this is not fulfilled within. A bit like the paintings..
