Description

Lear visited Palestine in 1858, and spent a fortnight making careful studies of Jerusalem from the surrounding hills. These formed the basis for five paintings, of which this is the largest and most magnificent. It was made for Samuel Price Edwards, a close friend, on his retirement from the Customs at Liverpool in 1865. The view is dominated by the Temple Mount with the Dome of the Rock, and the Mount of Olives to the left.
