Description

The picture depicts the legend of King Roderic of Spain spying on Florinda la Cava and the other palace girls while they bathe in a garden in Toledo, in order to decide the fairest. After Roderic selects and courts Florinda, her father takes revenge by inviting the Moors to invade and conquer Spain.

The painting is a replica of the one displayed at Osborne House which Queen Victoria gave as a birthday present to Prince Albert in 1852.
