Historical Context:
Spanish painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo was one of the most influential figures in Spanish Baroque painting. While best known for his religious works, he also produced a considerable amount of contemporary portraits. These portraits often depicted the town's many flower girls, street urchins, and beggars, providing a thorough yet intimate record of everyday life of this time and locale.
