David Bomberg was a precursor of the Vorticist movement in England and produced some of the most radical cubo-futurist works to come from Britain just before World War I. After serving in the First World War he abandoned his more radical experiments and looked instead back to the influence of Walter Sickert. Over the next decades he evolved a vigorous expressive style which was to influence younger artists including Auerbach and Kossoff. This is one of a series of late landscapes painted in Spain.
