In Alhambra Park, 1887

I Alhambras park

In Alhambra Park



The old palace and fortress complex, Alhambra, located in Granada, was an attractive destination for artists in the late 19th century. Zorn arrived during his third journey to Spain in April 1887 accompanied by his wife. A small garden at Alhambra provides the setting for this watercolor, where a man and woman are seen kissing on a park bench. The woman worked as a kitchen maid and modelled in countless pictures for Zorn in Alhambra.
