Sadly, Fortuny died of malaria shortly after his stay in Granada, in 1874, at the young age of 36.His son, also Mariano Fortuny, who was born in Granada, became a successful fashion designer.In Spain alone you can go to a staggering 900 events, of which the most popular type is gastronomy-related – in other words pairing Sherry with food.This will usually consist of a tasting menu of three or more tapas, each paired with a Sherry which complements its flavours.It can also be an exclusive venue for that special wedding in our own private chapel with a reception al fresco afterwards in the Moorish gardens.It is also an ideal location for small business conferences and workshops or as a base for special interest groups (artists, yoga, fitness, speciality clubs, photography, music, etc.).
This is to certify its authenticity as one of the painter’s works, dating from when all his oeuvre was gathered together by the National Museum of Catalonian Art.
