Roberts is recorded as having traveled to Spain in 1832 and 1833. He arrived in Spain in early December 1832 and by early May reached Seville, where an outbreak of cholera ended his tour. On his return to England, Roberts worked to convert his sketches into paintings and finished watercolors, many of which were made into lithographs for his Picturesque Sketches in Spain.
