Although it has been kept in the Cathedral of Seville since 1814, the Guardian Angel was painted for the Capuchin convent of the city. The friars of this monastery donated it to the cathedral chapter in gratitude for having guarded their artistic treasure during the War of Independence. However, the canvas that was paired with this work, representing St. Michael the Archangel, disappeared in the aforementioned transfer of 1810. Both paintings were not part of the cycles located in the church of the Capuchin convent, but were in the interior rooms of the convent.

Very similar to the Sevillian is the Guardian Angel (image below, oil on canvas, 126 x 115 cm) that Murillo painted for another Capuchin convent, that of Cadiz, specifically for its altarpiece dedicated to St. Catherine (1682), which was also part of a St. Michael.

Painted around 1665-1666 for the Convent of the Capuchins in our city, the painting of the Guardian Angel by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo was on one side of the presbytery, making a pair with the Saint Michael the Archangel that is today in Vienna. In 1814 the Capuchin community gave it as a gift to the Cathedral Chapter in gratitude for having guarded its walls before moving them to Gibraltar to avoid being plundered by the French. Until next April we will be able to contemplate it in the exhibition «Murillo and the Capuchins of Seville» that is celebrated in the Museum of Fine Arts.

Professor Enrique Valdivieso emphasizes that this is one of the works in which Murillo shows with greater fullness the concept of kind and serene beauty that he knew how to create to configure his celestial characters and that made him so successful with the people because of the communication established between the figures and the faithful who contemplates them.

The Cathedral of Seville was, in Murillo’s time, the most important institution for which an artist could work. For this reason, all artists wished to obtain a commission from the Cabildo and have their work contemplated inside the metropolitan temple, the nerve center of the religious, cultural and daily life of the city.

Since its construction, begun in 1401 from the Aljama Mosque, the Cathedral would incorporate an exceptional collection of paintings in its Gothic and Renaissance chapels, in which the main artists of Seville would be represented. Murillo, considered by the Chapter as the best painter of the city, began working for the Cathedral in 1655, carrying out different commissions until 1667.

The Cathedral is the second of the twenty spaces that make up the Itinerary in the footsteps of Murillo, through which it is possible to make a tour of the Seville of the seventeenth century following in the footsteps of the artist to the most emblematic places of his career. In them, you will be able to contemplate his works and understand the creative personality of an exceptional artist.
