Murillo was greatly admired in the nineteenth century for naturalistic depictions of ordinary people that were infused with poetic sensibility. Like many of his contemporaries, Schack viewed the Virgin and Child in the Galleria Corsini in terms of a genre painting: ‘The mother with her child is a young middle-class woman, with a trace of the gypsy about her, such as can be seen every day in the streets of Seville.’ Schack specifically requested Lenbach to copy this painting.
