Footnotes

  • These impressive and detailed topographical landscapes depict aerial views of the principal sites of the Crimean War on the Black Sea. Each is after a lithograph, from a series of eight, by Thomas Packer (active 1855-1880s) and published in 1855 by Stannard & Dixon, London. Considering the workmanship and scale, these oils are likely to have been commissioned by somebody with wealth and a close connection to the conflict.
