The Pavilion of Charles V in the Gardens of the Alcázar of Seville

1868. Oil on panel.
Not on display

In this popular scene, two people, one dressed in eighteenth century fashion, with a cape and two-cornered hat, are depicted in front of the Pavilion of Carlos V in the Gardens of the Alcázar of Seville. The presence of the man deliberately recalls the small genre scenes made popular by Madrazo’s brother-in-law, Mariano Fortuny, to whom this painting may be seen as a playful tribute.This is one of a set of small panels painted by Raimundo de Madrazo in 1868 during his visit to Granada and Seville. Despite its small size, this work, like the rest of the series, is characterized by extraordinary pictorial quality. The artist took much pleasure in describing such precise details as the decorations of the tiles adorning the building or the vegetation, with its organs and perfectly identifiable floral species. This work entered the Prado Museum as part of the legacy of Ramón Errazu.
