Edward Lear, Via Nomentana (1848)

Edward Lear, Via Nomentana.
Landscape with solitary tower. Inscribed ‘pale blue’ (upper right), indistinctly inscribed and dated ‘—/—.24.1848’ (lower right). Pencil. 15.5 x 35.5cm (6 1/8 x 14in).

[Date is March.24.1848. I read “Via Nomentana” in the Roman Campagna. Francesco De Luca confirms that this is a place called “la sedia del Diavolo” (Devil’s Seat) along via Nomentana.]
