BSA Friends’ Lecture (online only)
Abstract: Lear first visited Greece in 1848, and in 1849 returned with a friend Franklin Lushington to travel through the Peloponnese in March of that year. Over one hundred landscape drawings resulted, out of the total of 1.500 or more he made on all his visits to Greece over the next two decades. Stephen Duckworth, independent Lear researcher, will speak about this journey, drawing on unpublished material from Lear’s journals and the extensive collection of his drawings held by the Gennadius Library, the Benaki Museum and the Houghton Library at Harvard, many of which have not been digitised before.
