North African Landscape by Fortuny

Spanish artist Mariano Fortuny (1838-1874—also known as Marià Fortuny) traveled through Morocco in search of material for paintings of battles that had taken place there.

Inspired by the work of the Italian impressionists, he sought to capture the vast spaces and bright light and North Africa. This was one of his studies he did there. I love the grand, empty silences of this picture.
