  Original line engraving
Signed in pencil.
S 189 x 253 mm; P 126 x 167 mm; I 117 x 159 mm
Very fine signed proof impression from the only edition.

This highly stylised landscape work was engraved soon after Charles Murray's arrival in Italy – the strange plant forms in the foreground are derived directly from studies which Charles Murray had made in the Borghese Gardens opposite the buildings of the British School at Rome.

On cream wove paper with margins and deckle edge. Time tone in outer margins only, otherwise generally very good original condition. Image surface excellent.
