The San Telmo Tower

1781 - 1803. Oil on canvas Not on display

This canvas is part of a well-known series of 118 views of ports, bays, islands and shipyards of the Iberian Peninsula commissioned from the artist in 1781 by the Prince of Asturias, the future Charles IV. Sánchez completed the group in 1803. Depicting the San Telmo tower in Malaga, this view reveals the distant influence of the French painter Joseph Vernet in its approach, which is decorative and imprecise rather than specific and topographical.
