More about this artwork
The painting shows Toledo’s spectacular location on a granite plateau above the Tajo ravine. Perched high above the city is the Alcázar, the former royal palace. This put Schack in mind of the history of the Visigoth empire, of which Toledo was the capital, and he noted that Bamberger depicted ‘the residence of King Ruderic in all its picturesque singularity, enthroned on a rugged rock and still imposing despite its decay’.
