Leon Joubert was a French artist who specialized in landscape painting. Like many of the painters during the 19th century he studied with one of the premier artists of the period - Léon G. Pelouse (1838-1891) who was known for his majestic landscape images.
Joubert debuted at the Sociétaire des Artistes Français in 1883; received an honorable mention in 1884 and at the Salon of 1889 his painting titled Vallée Saint-Jean,Finistère was acquired by the French government. His works were also included in the Exposition Universelles of 1889 and 1900 – receiving the bronze medal at both.
His style and choice of subject matter show a significant influence from the work of the Barbizon painters – particularly that of Corot. Caude Phillips’ review of The Salon of the Champs Élysées of 1893 states: “Among these M. Joubert comes first, with his Le Colyseé vu du Palatin, a view of the Colosseum and its environment, more artistic and less nakedly topographical than any that has been produced since Corot in his early days made himself the interpreter of Roman city scenery.”

This painting depicts the Castillo de Loarre, which sits high above the village of Loarre and has stunning views of surrounding orchards and reservoirs of the Ebro plain. The Castillo de Loarre is closely moulded around the contours of rocks high on a hill overlooking the Ebro plain in Aragon, Spain.
