'Chris Beetles Summer Show', 2021, No 27

Edward Lear spent the winter of 1864-65 in Nice, on the French Riviera, staying with his Souliote servant, Giorgio Kokali, in rooms at 61 Promenade des Anglais. he worked hard and produced a large number of drawings both of Nice and – during December – of the coast between Nice and Genoa.

The present view looks in a south-westerly direction over the roofs of Villefranche-sur-Mer to Mont Boron, and then across the bay towards Antibes.
