Sketches In The East Drawn On Stone By Dickinson And Son.
In 1838 Lady Louisa Tenison married Edward King Tenison of Kilronan Castle, Co. Roscommon, who later became Lord Lieutenant in 1856. In 1843 she and her husband visited Egypt, Syria and Palestine. She also visited Damascus during Sir Richard Wood's consulship, and amongst the sketches of that city is one drawn in the consul's house. The watercolors made during this trip form the basis of these lithographs.
