This picture is from a collection of superb 19th-century works associated with the Bath area, possibly once owned by Lady Frances Mary Perring. The collection includes landscapes by Joseph Horlor (1809-1887), as well as drawings by, and drawn for, Lady Perring. An inscription on the verso of one drawing suggests that Horlor was possibly Perring’s drawing teacher.
