The Immaculate Conception of El Escorial is an oil painting by the Spanish Baroque painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, who belongs to the great names of the Spanish Golden Age or Golden Century. During this period, painting followed rigid political and religious objectives, mostly principles of the Catholic Reformation. Despite this, Spain witnessed a time of great creativity, and painters such as Francisco de Zurbarán, Diego Velázquez, and Murillo created enduring masterpieces that revolutionized painting. Because of this political context, Murillo worked primarily with religious orders, focusing on Biblical narratives and motifs. In The Immaculate Conception of El Escorial, a subject that he worked with many times, we have a beautiful example of his visually complex manner.
José de Ribera’s body of work, which had its bases on Caravaggio, and tenebrism, significantly influenced Murillo’s early works. Beginning in 1649, Spain suffered from a strong plague that killed a considerable part of its population, and 46% of the Sevillian population died. Such a tragic event heightened the influence of the religious orders even more, and many of the works painted by Spanish artists during this period had a melancholic tone to them. The painter started to depict children, homeless people, and the Sevillian inhabitants around this period, developing his naturalist and detailed style.
While these early subjects were fundamental to Murillo’s oeuvre, his mid and later masterpieces are very different since, through his study of daily life, he gave a more organic and materialist side to religious painting. Murillo’s palette intensified as he presented a great understanding of primary colors, working with their full intensity and creating pictures that intermingle the earthly dimension with heaven, creating exciting compositions through his arrangement of clouds and the angel’s heads throughout his images.
The 206 x 144 cm oil painting entitled The Immaculate Conception of El Escorial carries a strong subject in Spain. The immaculate conception stemmed from a local belief that Mary, mother of Christ, wasn’t conceived through carnal relations. Local festivities were held throughout the whole year in her honor. As usual in Murillo’s mature period, the picture explodes with color. Mary is wearing a bright white robe and has an intense blue fabric on her arms. The areas around her were painted in bright yellow, and through the clouds and angels, the painter created another frame inside the image, giving greater emphasis to Mary.
