Lithograph, very rare & scarce, printed area 130 x 180mm (5 x 7¼").
Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, from the sea. The printmarker, Mary Anne Theresa Whitby (1784-1850) probably visited the city while travelling in Italy. Whitby was the widow of Cornwallis' flag captain, John Whitby, who died in 1806. Following her husband's death, Whitby spent much of her time with Cornwallis, who left his estate to her on his death in 1819. Whitby was an amateur lithographer who established a private press at Newlands.
