Print of the Week: Giralda Bell Tower

1

This week’s featured Print of the Week is The Giralda Bell Tower in Seville, Spain. Built between 1184 and 1198, the bell tower adorns one of the largest churches in the world, the Cathedral of Seville.

The bell tower was constructed as the minaret of a Moorish mosque during the Muslim occupation of Spain. It later became a Christian church after Fernando III re-took the city and ordered the structure to be preserved.

The cathedral is a gorgeous mix of architectural styles and eras, with Moorish, Gothic, and Renaissance influences.

The Giralda Bell Tower is made from my original pen and ink drawing, and is carefully printed on acid-free, high quality art paper with a matte finish. This fine art print can be purchased in the following sizes: 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, and 13×19.

If you would like to commission art featuring your own subject matter, please contact me and I can create a custom piece just for you.

Every piece of artwork has a story. You can have each new Print of the Week delivered right to your inbox! Be sure to follow my blog for a behind the scenes look at the inspiration for my work.
