Neapolitan Landscape

1874. Oil on canvas.
Room 063B

This painting summarises many of Fortuny’s artistic concerns during his summer stay in Portici on the Neapolitan coast in a more complete manner than the other landscapes from this period in the Prado. It reveals his practice of working from life (here on the seashore for the first time), the use of pure colour, varied brushstrokes and the technique of leaving the preparation visible.
