Lady Louisa Tenison’s Sketches in the East

The daughter of the 1st Earl of Lichfield, Lady Louisa Mary Anne Tenison (1819-1882) visited the Middle East in 1843 with her husband, Edward King-Tenison. The sumptuous scenery of Egypt, Syria, and Palestine provided the subject for her Sketches in the East, originally done in watercolor and later drawn on stone by Dickinson & Son when published in 1846. Lady Tenison is more commonly known for her work Castile and Andalusia (1853); her stunningly detailed Sketches in the East rarely appears on the market.
