View of Gibraltar

Pierre Celestin Bouchard - A View of Gibraltar and the African coast, ca. 1815 - with some persons and boats in the foreground signed and inscribed in French "Vu de la cote orientale de l`Espagne et demi de distance, cote d`Afrique" - Watercolor and ink on paper - 43 x 55 cm (17 by 21 1/2 in)

Note: We have so far no information about the artist, maybe he visited the location on board of a vessel which stopped at Gibraltar and just made this picture for his home or family. The cutout pinwheels and the decorative motif at top are later additions. Private Collection.
