Interior of the Mosque in Córdoba

1838. Oil on canvas.
Room 061

The Scottish artist David Roberts travelled around Spain between 1832 and 1833, en route to Africa. Fascinated by its Islamic and Christian monuments, his works present an exotic and literary vision of Spain. This canvas, executed after his return to London, depicts a colourful and idealised view of the Villaviciosa Chapel, beneath the pierced vault constructed under Al-Hakam II.
