Edward Lear painted this scene when travelling between Aliveri and Kumi on the north-east coast of Euboea in Greece. This appears to have been a rapidly produced sketch and simply a topographical reminder of his travels. The broad sweeps of wash, in a relatively limited palette, ensure that the initial drawing is still clearly visible.
