The British artistic discovery of Spain and Portugal came late, some areas remaining unknown until the 19th and even the 20th century. Art historian Dr Patricia Andrew traces the routes of British artists, many of them Scots, as they discovered cities and landscapes familiar from legend but unfamiliar and exciting in reality.
