Description

Painted in 1905, the present work is one of several views painted by Regoyos depicting the Puente Nuevo in Ronda, Andalusia. The construction of the bridge started in 1759 and it was completed by the end of the 1790s. The bridge, which still stands today, is an imposing stone structure that divides the city of Ronda and overlooks the Guadalevín River.

In 1879 Regoyos had moved to Brussels, a defining journey for the artist. Here, he became friends with members of the avant garde Les XX, before joining the group himself. Les XX were closely attuned to the 'New Painting', later known as Impressionism, in France. From the 1890s, the influence of the Belgian and the French Post-Impressionists became ever more present in Regoyos' work. As in the present work, Regoyos' fondness for Spain found expression in the lyrical and emotive enthusiasm translated in his beautiful landscapes and scenes of everyday Spanish life.
