London, M'Lean, 1841
£5,000

This delightful series of views captures the vivid everyday life of the people as well as the grandeur of the Roman scenery.

Beginning in 1837 Lear spent several winters in Italy. Views in Rome records his first impressions of the land that was to become a second home to him. In these panoramic lithographs he is more concerned with the dramatic scenery around Rome than with the Holy City itself. Their freshness and size combine to make them his most successful topographical prints.
