The Old Town Hall in Granada (1873/1873) by Mariano FortunyMuseo de Bellas Artes de Granada
In this work, Fortuny depicts the old town hall and plays with the effects of light, creating an early afternoon scene.
The architectural background stands out, which turns out to be a reinterpretation of different spaces and corners of the city. This is something that has been studied thanks to the many notes Fortuny made that have been preserved.
The building on the right, the Old Town Hall of Granada (also former Islamic madrasa of Yususf I), and the building in the background, the disappeared San Fernando College, are painted almost picture-perfect.
However, the construction on the left, where we can see a few stalls, does not really exist. You would normally find the Royal Chapel here.
