George’s Postcard Note: This elegant 16th century palace was built by a wealthy nobleman, clearly a man of great taste. (Especially when compared with what the Royals did with their palace, Seville’s Alcazar!) He took advantage of moorish craftsmen and expressed his taste in the best of mudejar architecture, combined it with greek and roman statuary, and included wonderfully intimate garden spaces. It inspired me to paint in the style of 16th century watercolorists, where detail and accuracy was all important – to make a visual record of the space.
