This painting shows only a part of the semi-circular building at the Plaza de España, which is inside María Luisa Park in Seville. Built in a style heavily influenced by the Moorish tastes, this must be one of the most beautiful architectures in all of Seville.
Just before the sunset time, the building glowed in the gorgeous golden-orange color. The intensity of the color kept growing and growing as if it would soon burn the building. And then it was gone. It was a mesmerizing sight. It was almost seductive and flirtatious, if I may say so, just like Carmen, a gypsy woman portrayed in Bizet's opera. Royal Tobacco Factory where Carmen worked is not so far from here.
