Basilica de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias, Granada

Nuestra Señora de las Angustias

Nuestra Señora de las Angustias

This is a watercolour of the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias in the centre of Granada. This lovely, 17th Century church is one of the best examples of Andalucian Baroque architecture. Nuestra Señora de las Angustias is the patron Saint of Granada and on the last Sunday of September her statue is taken from the church and carried in a procession around the city. This scene is best painted in late autumn with its light and shade and the beautiful colours of the trees along the Carrera del Genil.

The image size is 350mm x 250mm.

The original painting has been SOLD.

Prints. Limited edition (1-100) signed prints on Arches Aquarelle paper are available for 35 euros and can be purchased direct from me.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
