1799 Graphite Drawing - Revolutionaries in Trieste
DescriptionA very delicate graphite study of the Trieste landscape. The very interesting inscription reads "Town of Trieste, April 26th 1799 - In taking this view, I was seized by the peasantry and carried to the town as a French spy - which circumstance proved very nearly fatal to me. Great numbers of Bonaparte's (Napoleon) soldiers had been privately murdered while in this neighbourhood". On laid.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and foxing.
