It is available for accommodation Seville guests to see until October 10th 2010 and involves a collection of 15 paintings on wood, which show a variety of religious scenes.

The organisers stated that the illustrations narrate scenes between the Virgin Mary and her parents, with de Campaña having painted the pieces some time between 1542 and 1557.

"The exhibition allows us to envision the result of the restoration of the works that comprise the altarpiece of the church of Santa Ana de Triana, which has taken place in the Andalusian Institute of Historical Heritage," explained the venue.

There is plenty more to see at the art space, with the sculpture of St Jerome and a portrait of Jorge Manuel providing highlights for fans of Spanish work.

Visitors can view this fascinating display from Tuesday to Saturday, between 09:00 and 20:30 local time, as well as Sundays from 09:00 to 14:30.
