Revello de Toro Museum (Museo Revello de Toro)
As one of Spain’s most revered contemporary artists, Fèlix Revello de Toro (born 1926 in Málaga) was awarded his own museum in 2010; it is located in the historic workshop and home of Pedro de Mena, a 17th-century artist known for his religious paintings. Arranged in typically Moorish style around an inner courtyard, the building is worthy of note for its architectural highlights, including the original wooden stairways and balcony overhanging the courtyard. A short video showcasing the life of Pedro de Mena is shown in the museum’s Memorial Room, and his work can be seen in Málaga Cathedral.
However, the real star of this museum is the permanent display of more than 100 of Revello de Toro’s sketches, figurative work and powerful portraits. Known for his precocious talent, the young artist first exhibited at the tender age of 12 and he went on to study in Madrid, Rome and Barcelona. Best known for his delicate depiction of the female form, highlights of the collection include portraits of his family and his most famous work, Sumida en el sueño (Deep Slumber), which was painted in 1989 and hangs in isolated glory in the final room of the exhibition.
