#ThursdayDoors Julio Romero de Torres Museum #Cordoba, #Spain

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature, hosted by Norm 2.0 allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. 

Would you like to follow me inside the Julio Romero de Torres Museum?

This is the main door to the museum, which was also the house in which the painter lived. Unfortunately, no photos are allowed inside the building.

It’s one of the typical houses found in the Old Town, specifically in the Jewish Quarter. It’s a small museum with six large rooms of exhibits on three floors. There’s an open air patio in the centre with orange trees and ceramic tiles.

Here is Julio Romero de Torres (1874-1930), painting in his patio.

He painted mainly dark haired and olive-skinned women, often with either sorrowful or defiant expressions.

This is one of his most famous paintings ‘La Chiquita Piconera’  ‘The Little Coal Girl’.

This painting is called ‘Alegrías’. It depicts a group of cheerful women dancing a flamenco dance called ‘Alegrias’, which also means happiness.

And here we have the other side of the coin ‘¡Mira qué bonita era!’ or ‘Look how beautiful she was!’

You can take a virtual tour of the museum here, enjoy!
