The Colour of Angels

Original title: El color de los ángeles
Category: Fiction
Synopsis:

One day in 1682, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo falls from the scaffold on which he was painting. Forced to rest, he thinks back to his childhood and adolescence in the then powerful city of Seville, which would slowly enter into decline, stricken by the floods of Guadalquivir and epidemics such as the plague in which the painter would lose three of his children. A religious but also sinful Seville basking in the false allegory of its glorious past.

Murillo, painter of virgins, saints and miracles, would also be a favourite of wealthy merchants and capricious aristocrats. The best painter of angels there ever was will find himself caught up in a murky affair that reveals the secret, seamy underbelly of a city of contradictions.
