Description

Signed: "Carelli Atene 1839". Mounted with a printed excerpt from "The Corsair" (1814) by Lord Byron, Canto III, Stanza II: “Oh! who can look along thy native sea,/ Nor dwell upon thy name, whate'er the tale,/ So much its magic must o'er all prevail?/ Who that beheld that Sun upon thee set,/ Fair Athens! could thine evening face forget?”.
