Hand-coloured etching and aquatint. Plate 475 x 629mm (18¾ x 24¾"). Slightly trimmed, slight paper toning.
Inverness, in the Scottish Highlands, where the River Ness enters the Moray Firth, from the "Views in Scotland" series. Although it cannot be proved it is believed that 'I. Clark" is the Scottish painter John Heaviside Clark, famed as 'Waterloo Clark' for his early sketches of the Battle. He was also skilled in aquatinting, and certainly none of this series has a named engraver.
