We present the reference information of this exhibition and cycle of conferences organized by the Menéndez Pelayo International University (UIMP) and the Institute of Culture and Arts of Seville (ICAS) on the occasion of the celebration of the "Year of Murillo" in Seville. BarroAzul has participated in the production of ceramic contents of the exhibition, as well as in the execution of the plan of guided visits to it.

With this exhibition at the Centro Ceramica Triana, the presence of pottery and the  pottery of Seville is highlighted in the context of Murillo's pictorial work and his time. With this exhibition at the Centro Ceramica Triana, the presence of this popular Sevillian handicraft will be revealed in the context of his pictorial work.
There are numerous testimonies to the presence of ceramic objects in Painting throughout the different periods of the History of Art, but it is undoubtedly during the Baroque era, with a fondness for the still life, when its presence on the canvas was made more remarkable and reached a higher quality.
Murillo, like many other painters of his time, reflected in his paintings the world that surrounded him (rogues, old people, women and men doing their daily chores), as well as the setting in which they developed, portraying a true catalogue of pieces and props in which there were, of course, the trianeras ceramics (pitchers, cantarillas, pots, jars, alcarrazas, plates, wells, bowls ...).
