“An American ex-pat living abroad for most of his career, Henry Bacon found plenty to inspire him among the historic capitals of Europe and North Africa. He began using watercolor towards the end of the 19th century, a move which served him well given the medium’s portability and fast-drying quality. It can also be a very difficult and unforgiving medium, therefore I love this painting for the amount of detail he was able to capture in the cathedral’s ornamental façade and in the figures gathered around the plaza.”
