A Street in the Albaicín. Granada

1871 - 1872. Wash, Pencil, Pencil, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper.
Not on display

This drawing shows Fortuny’s fondness for the architecture and winding alleyways of the Albaicín, one of Granada’s landmark districts. The narrowness of the streets provided the painter with an excellent opportunity to study perspective, aided by the line running along the centre of many of its cobbled streets -channels that carried water from the Arab cisterns at the top of the hill.
