This is an attractive view of Seville in southern Spain by George Vivian (1798-1873) published in ‘Spanish Scenery’. The work was the result of two visits to Spain made in the years 1833 and 1837. As he states in the Preface ‘During the first period Spain was comparatively tranquil … During the second I saw the demolition of some of the finest convents going on, and observed the sites on which others had recently stood: the prospect of the speedy ruin of nearly all … made me feel a strong desire to preserve some trace of establishments… [with] an interest and character not less in Spain than in Italy.’ Abbey Travel 154.
