Catalogue Note

Painted in early 1907, the present work dates from Sorolla's sojourn at La Angorilla, a country house in El Pardo, north of Madrid, where his daughter María spent much of that year recovering from illness. The landscapes from this period ultimately relate to María Convalescing in El Pardo (private collection), depicting the artist's seventeen-year-old daughter wrapped in blankets before the sierra.

Pantorba references five works of the same dimensions of the Guadarrama range (see Pantorba nos. 220-222; 1607-1608). With the re-emergence and sale in these rooms in 2016 of a further, until then unrecorded work, this brings the total to six, five of which, including the present work, were exhibited at the exhibition of Sorolla's work at the Grafton Galleries in 1908. 

The view in the present work relates closely to one of the versions now in the Meadows Museum, Texas (Pantorba no. 1607).
