Edward Lear's trip in Albania - Albania

Edward Lear’s trip in Albania

Scroll down
Edward Lear (1812-1888) was a pretty incredible man for his time. Not many got the chance to travel as much as he did back then (if at all), and they especially didn’t get to travel in the way that he did. Edward Lear was an English landscape and portrait artist who taught Queen Victoria how to wield a paintbrush. He also traversed many lands that were curious and indeed very exotic at that time in history. Throughout his life, he travelled extensively in Italy, Albania, Greece, Egypt, and India, venturing along a slow and cultural path, often meeting up with well-placed friends on the way. He was by no means a one-trick pony, though. As well as creating scenes of some of the most well-known landscapes in the world, Lear was also a handy poet and writer, known mainly for his array of ‘nonsense’ works that use both real and made-up words. Today, I thought I’d share some of Lear’s incredible drawings with you, spanning all across the globe from a time we can only imagine. I’ll let the pieces do the talking.
