Description

Executed in oil-on-canvas and set within a carved giltwood frame, this excellent painting is by Enrique Roldan, a fine Spanish artist, active in the late 19th century.

Many of Roldan's works depict the Alcazar of Seville, a beautiful Christian palace built upon and incorporating the earlier Islamic alcazar, or residential fortress, on the same site. Interior views of the palace and its courtyards, with its rich and complex architecural history, were a favourite of the artist, who captured both the grandeur and intimacy of this magical setting in his work, as exemplified by this fine work, in which the setting is enriched and enlived by the colourful and dynamic figure of the dancer. It is signed 'E. Roldan (18)88 / Sevilla' to the lower left.
