A View in Spain
Frederic, Lord Leighton

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.
