The Maria Luisa Park is a public park that stretches along the Guadalquivir River in Seville.
Inside this park, we can see the Monument to Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, located in the north of the park. It was constructed in 1911. In the monument there is a bust of the poet. To his right is Cupid as a chlid throwing arrows at three young women. To the left of the bust is Cupid as an adult, stabbed and dying. This scene is inspired by Becquer's poetry collection Rimas.
The house is located in Conde de Barajas street. There, Bécquer, maximum representative of romanticism in Spain, lived with his parents and brother, Valeriano.
It's a museum with a collection of mainly Spanish visual arts from the medieval period to
the early 20th century, including a choice selection of works by artists
from the so-called Golden Age of Sevillian painting during the 17th
century, such as Murillo, Zurbarán. We can find many works from romanticism's artists as "El retrato de Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer", painted by his brother Valeriano.
The museum was founded in 1839.
