A city in ancient Greece, after Linton; people on steps in front of a temple in the foreground, with trees round the curved collonaded portico, preparing to offer a sacrifice and looking to left towards a galley carrying men in armour which rows past, other galleys lined up to left in front of another temples, more in the harbour beyond to right with town buildings rising above, including a bridge lined by statues across a cascade, to left. According to ODNB, the 'Royal Gallery of British Art' was the most ambitious publication of the brothers William and Edward Finden, though sadly unprofitable: a set of forty-eight plates after the most notable painters of the day, published by them with the collaboration of others, between 1838 and 1840.
