Seville -- at the workshop established by his painter father, Francisco de Zurbarán (baptized November 7, 1598 - August 27, 1664) -- is the location of the painting "Flowers and Fruit in a China Bowl" by Juan de Zurbarán. The Badajoz-born Baroque painter in question (1620 - 1649) may have produced the oil on canvas still life -- known in Spanish as Flores y frutas en una porcelana china -- in 1645, only a few years before dying of the plague. It numbers among the collections of the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago.
