Across the patio from the Museo de Bellas Artes, this museum honors Julio Romero de Torres, a Córdoba-born artist (1874-1930) known for his sensual portraits of women. He caused the greatest scandal with his "hyper-realistic nudes," and in 1906 the National Exhibition of Fine Arts banned his Vivadoras del Amor. On display here is his celebrated Oranges and Lemons, and other notable works such as The Little Girl Who Sells Fuel, Sin, and A Dedication to the Art of the Bullfight. A corner of Romero's Madrid studio has been reproduced in one of the rooms, displaying the paintings left unfinished at his death.
