This is a view of the cathedral in Burgos, Spain. Dobbin travelled in the Netherlands, France, Spain and Germany and specialised in architectural subjects, depicting cathedrals, churches and buildings. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1842 and 1875, which included some Scottish landscapes. He also exhibited regularly at the Royal Society of British Artist at Suffolk Street. Dobbin also painted areas of the north east, especially around Darlington where he was born, and painted a picture of the first railway train, which was purchased by Henry Pease of Darlington.
