The Castle of Alcalá de Guadaira

Oil on canvas, 40 x 48 cm
Museo del Prado, Madrid

This landscape by the Scotsman David Roberts is of special interest. The artist was the prototype of the travellers who captured the Spanish landscape with a romantic vision, which is clearly perceptible in his interpretation of The Castle of Alcalá de Guadaira.
