Notes: Charles Clifford was connected to the most recent lines of thought in the artistic debates of the time; those related to modernity and antiquity. He was as interested in the new concepts of landscape: modern or technological as well as the preservation of the rich architectural heritage of Spain in which nineteenth century tastes for antiquity and ruins are present. Charles Clifford dedicated a long passage in A photographic scramble through Spain to the Patio del Alcázar “ This has now been thoroughly restored, and those who visited Seville seven or eight years ago, will barely recognise in the present building the honeycombed and dismantled skeleton that hourly threatened and entire demolition. The doors are in a high state of preservation, and offer and excellent sample of morish workmanship.”
Printed on the image is number 128, which corresponds to the catalogue number in A Photographic Scramble through Spain.
