Provenance
Legacy of Ramón de Errazu, 1904

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.

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.
