This painting forms part of a charming collection of watercolours that we have for sale dated 1875 to 1879, executed by seven siblings of the Robinson family. The works, which include popular Victorian subjects such as castle ruins, stormy seascapes, Alpine passes and Continental medieval architecture, are appealing examples of amateur watercolour practice in the 19th century. Catalogued meticulously with the artist’s name and date, taken as a whole they represent impressive familial effort and affection for the watercolour medium.
