Description

A watercolour showing two figures walking along a palm-tree lined shore.
Lear travelled to the Middle East a number of times throughout his life. This watercolour was worked up a number of years later from sketches Lear had made on the spot at the request of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, who himself undertook an extensive tour in the Middle East in 1862. The Prince thought the artist's sketches made in Palestine and Egypt 'very pretty'.
