Three vignettes of a man and woman in traditional costume in Andalusia, southwestern Spain. The bolero is a moderately slow tempo dance that originated in Spain in the late 18th century, a combination of the contradanza and the sevillana. Dancer Sebastiano Carezo is credited with inventing the dance in 1780. It is danced by either a soloist or a couple. The dance is performed to music which is sung and accompanied by castanets and guitars. Numbered No.2 upper left; from a scarce folio of Spanish genre sketches published in Malaga.
