Artist's Description

The Plaza Mayor (Major Square) is a grand arcaded square, measuring 129 by 94 metres, in the center of Madrid, Spain.
The most prominent building on the Plaza Mayor is the Casa de la Panaderia (Bakery House). It was completed as early as 1590, before the square was even laid out. Its current design with symmetric towers dates from after the last fire in 1790. The colourful allegoric murals were only added recently, in 1992.
A bronze statue of King Philip III, constructed in 1616 by Jean Boulogne and Pietro Tacca, stands at the center of the square.
