Easy to overlook, this small canvas was significantly damaged with paint losses. 'Continental School, c.1800, A View of Gibraltar from the Spanish Shore, unsigned', went on to sell for £2,150. The skill of the artist was clear on close inspection and this together with the rarity of the subject, generated a significant amount of interest in this piece, particularly of course from Gibraltar itself.
