A view of Trento (anglicised as Trent), formerly part of Austria but annexed by Italy in 1919. Sir Augustus Wall Callcott (1779-1844), a friendly rival of J.M.W. Turner, made Keeper of the Queen's Pictures in 1843. He painted this picture for his friend Samuel Cartwright, a dentist. Exhibited at the R.A. in 1836, The Times newspaper commented that to ''look at Callcott's 'Trent in the Tyrol' after a dose of Turner's 'Mercury and Argus' is as cool and refreshing as iced champagne after mulligatawny''. This plate was engraved for Finden's 'Gallery of British Art'.
