Book Description Book Condition: Used: Very Good. Very carefully read. Light shelf wear to cover. Some slight marks to front end paper. 'Edward Lear, best known as a writer of limericks and nonsense verse, was by profession a landscape draughtsman and painter. Traveling through exotic regions such as Calabria, Corsica, Egypt and India, he made sketches from nature, which, upon his return home, he worked up into oil paintings and watercolors for sale and exhibition. Impossible Picturesqueness presents a selection of Lear's Indian watercolors, and documents his journey to India in 1873-75, making ample use of the artist's exuberant and thoughtful journals of his time spent there. Art Historian Staley has written an insightful essay on Lear's life and work, which concludes the book.' (Columbia University). Bookseller Inventory # GC-IQNA-XCD9
