santas-zurbaran-sevillaThis was one of the most enjoyable exhibitions I’ve seen in awhile. Combining art and fashion is bound to please and it also makes paintings like these feel more accessible. Francisco Zubarán (1598 – 1664) is mostly known for his religious paintings and still lifes, and here the outfits worn by his martyr saints have been interpreted by 12 contemporary Spanish fashion designers, including well-known names Vittorio & Lucchino and Agatha Ruiz de la Prada.

The Espacio Santa Clara is a former convent that has recently been done over as a cultural centre. The space is gorgeous with tiled patios and beautiful wood-beamed ceilings in the galleries.
