Leighton visited Spain for the first time in 1866, travelling extensively and making oil sketches as he went. This sketch shows an old stone wall dividing a farmyard from green fields, sparsely dotted with trees. Rugged hills rise in the distance. The wall, worn and rounded with age, is as irregular as the hills themselves.
