David Roberts fue uno de los pintores anglosajones románticos que viajo por España, captando las imágenes más representativas del paisaje y el pintoresquismo nacional, centrado sobre todo en Andalucía,. En este caso, es la imagen del río Guadalquivir a su paso por Sevilla protagonizada por la Torre del Oro, el natural ajetreo de las embarcaciones que navegan por su cauce o atracan en sus orillas, la que perpetúa el ambiente exótico que los románticos foráneos vieron en España (http://www.museodelprado.es/coleccion/galeria-on-line/galeria-on-line/obra/la-torre-del-oro/?no_cache=1).
