monogrammed lower right, watercolour, 10cm x 20cm

Provenance: Franklin Lushington (1823-1901) and thence by descent.

Franklin Lushington, the son of Edmund Henry Lushington, was appointed judge to the Supreme Court of Justice in the Ionian Islands in 1855 and Lear went with him to live in Corfu. They had met in Malta in 1849, where Franklin’s elder brother Henry was Chief Secretary to the government. On his death, Lear left all his papers to Lushington, who later destroyed most of them.
