During his two-month tour to Athens, mainland Greece and the island of Euboea, Edward Lear made almost 150 landscape drawings and kept a diary of his experiences and impressions. Many years later, Lear’s travelling companion, Charles Church, wrote up his own reminiscences of their trip, incorporating parts of Lear’s diary.
You will also find details of the method and organisation of Lear’s pictures.
A plan of their journey, together with Maps of the region are provided to help you get your bearings.
Further information about the project includes a description of the original typescript (now in the Westminster School Archive), biographical information about Charles Church, acknowledgements, links to other sites documenting Lear’s travels and suggestions for further reading.
