Edward Lear, ‘Finale between Bologna and Modena, Italy.’
[Note: this is certainly not “Finale Emilia,” near where I live and with no harbour (no sea here, unfortunately!), it is certainly Finale Ligure, not far from Sanremo.]
Inscribed in ink lower left “Finale / 10.45 AM / 17 December 1864” and with the artist’s annotations in pencil and ink watercolour 17 x 51.5cm.
Provenance: The Leger Galleries, 13 Old Bond Street, London W1, October 1972.
