Provenance
Museo de Arte Moderno, donation by the disciples of Carlos de Haes, 1899

A view of the pass in the canyon of the Mesa River between Jaraba and Calmarza.

The intensity of the light and the diversity of colors of the different minerals caught de Haes attention very early on. Here he emphasizes the contrasting colors with an intensely blue sky, and the shadows of the large crags.

This work was donated to the now-defunct Museum of Modern Art by Jaime Morera and accepted by Royal Order of 10 June 1899.
