Description

A watercolour showing a view of Old Balmoral Castle - the Dee in the foreground, the castle in the middle distance, and mountains beyond. The artist was in Waiting during the Queen's first visit to Balmoral, 8-28 September 1848. She produced a series of watercolours which give a clear impression of the old Castle in its setting, before Prince Albert began his extensive tree planting. The verso is inscribed 'Balmoral from the opposite side of the Dee Sep. 1848. Visc. Canning P. 2. 2. 61'.
