Maria Colsen - circa 1824 Album, Views of Hastings
DescriptionA very fine album of approximately 78 graphite drawings and approximately 3 watercolours mainly of Hastings, but also including Warwick Castle, Basingstoke, North Wales and other English locations. Drawings are inserted at corners to pages with protective tissue paper, some pages have missing drawings. Most drawings are inscribed with locations, and many are signed with initials and dated. The inside cover is inscribed "Maria Colsen / from John Arbott Collection". Drawings measure approximately 8 x 11.5 cm (including an embellished border), pages measure 24.4 x 16 cm, album measures 25 x 17 cm. Signed and dated and inscribed.
Condition is typical for pictures of this age including some discolouration to the borders of the drawings, and light foxing in areas, but pages are protected by tissue paper and so the condition has been kept quite good.
