These drawings by Philip Reinagle all show views in the Lake District. Reinagle visited this area and exhibited several paintings of its impressive scenery. One painting, entitled 'View of Coniston' was shown at the British Institution in 1809 and another, 'View of the Old Man Mountain on Coniston Lake, Westmoreland, with a fine Group of Cattle in the Foreground: Evening', described as 'a splendid picture; one of his chef d'oeuvres' was part of a sale of Reinagle's work and collection held in April 1821 at Christie's in London.
