In 1940 two new Schools of Fine Arts were created in Spain: the San Jorge School of Fine Arts in Barcelona and the Santa Isabel de Hungria here in Seville, thus adding to the two schools that already existed in Valencia and Madrid.
Jose Hernandez Diaz and Joaquin Romero Murube, two luminaries from the Sevillan cultural world, were charged with organising study plans, finding a location and proposing teaching staff for the new Sevillian centre. For its location they chose the house of the painter Gonzalo Bilbao, rented and later bought from his widow as the headquarters of the new school.
The School of Fine Arts has two centres, its headquarters and a recently inaugurated annex.
