Fine view of the entrance to the Regent's Canal at Limehouse Basin. After a drawing by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd (1793-1864), one of the most prolific of all London draughtsmen. In addition to his work with print publishers, Shepherd also developed a long relationship with the collector Frederick Crace, who commissioned him to make many watercolours of London views. The Crace collection, now part of the British Museum, contains an excellent collection of Shepherd's work.
