Lot Essay

The present drawing relates to a series of sketches published in 1838 entitled Sketches on the Moselle, the Rhine, & the Meuse. By Clarkson Stanfield, Esqre. R.A. Stanfield had visited Germany and Belgium twice before by the time he set off in 1836 to make sketches for the publication. His expedition took him to Brussels, Liège, then up the Meuse to Huy, Namur, Dinant, Givet, then to the Moselle, where he passed through Luxembourg and Trier, and finally setting off to Koblenz via the Rhine.

We are grateful to Pieter van der Merwe of the National Maritime Museum for his help in preparing this catalogue entry.
