I hope I’ll be able to post Edward Lear’s second letter to A.M. Ricci tomorrow. For the moment, enjoy this watercolour I did not have when posting Lear’s diary entry for 20 April 1863.
A view of Santa Maura, Akarnia.
Numbered, inscribed and dated ‘Akarnia/Santa Maura/20 April.1863/9.A.M./(59). (lower right) and further inscribed with colour notes. Pencil, pen and brown ink and watercolour heightened with bodycolour. 13¾ x 19¼ in. (34.9 x 48.8 cm.)
