The Antonio Gala Foundation, Córdoba will be holding a special photographic exhibition of Charles Clifford's Andalucia, organized by the Fundación José Manuel Lara and the Hispanic Society of America.
The collection consists of about forty images, made during a tour of Andalusia by the renowned British photographer, Charles Clifford (1821-1863), accompanied Queen Isabel II of Borbón in 1862. The photos show urban landscapes, Town Halls, cathedrals, churches and monuments but exhibition curator, Ana Gavín, says some of the most interesting shots are of the commemorative arches which were built and erected at the entrance to some towns specifically to welcome the queen.
The Hispanic Society of America is one of the three bodies to now own a copy of the photo albums which Clifford gave to the queen. The second is in the Royal Palace in Madrid and the third is held by the National Library. 40 of the 60 photographs in the album are on show in Córdoba; the other 20 are of Cartagena and Murcia.
The exhibition will run until 5 November, Monday to Friday from 12:00 to 14:00 and 18:00 to 21:00.
