Provenance
Legacy of Ramón de Errazu, 1904

A serene landscape with the Bidasoa River's mouth at the Cantabrian Sea, as seen from the sands of Fuenterrabía.

This landscape, along with sixteen other works, was presented by Rico at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 in Paris, where it was qualified as “spiritual, compositions that appear to have been made with drops of light on the end of the brush.”

This work entered the Prado Museum as part of the legacy of Ramón de Errazu.
