Luis Paret: 'View of El Arenal de Bilbao'

Explore the paintings

Probably one of a series of views of northern Spanish ports made during the artist's exile. The handling of the figures and landscape shows the influence of French painting.

The small quayside of El Arenal (now in the centre of modern Bilbao) was used as an elegant promenade and for unloading cargoes from ships anchored in the river Nervión.
