The 17th-century Spanish baroque painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo is being celebrated Thursday with a more modern artwork -- the Google Doodle. Google's logo features Murillo's oil painting «Two Women at a Window,» created in the late 1650s. The work shows two aristocratic Spanish women looking out of an open window, one hiding a smirk. The search engine's celebration of Murillo will be seen by internet users in several European countries, as well as China, India and Australia.
Murillo joins a long list of eminent figures to have received the Google Doodle treatment -- recent weeks have featured Native American engineer Mary G. Ross, martial arts pioneer Mestre Bimba and American children's television personality Fred Rogers.
