Solomon Alexander Hart RA, Interior of a mosque (?)

Interior of a mosque (?)

Solomon Alexander Hart RA (April 1806 - 1881)

RA Collection: Art

These drawings all relate to Solomon Hart's visit to Italy in 1841-1842. The artist was advised to travel in Europe by the Duke of Sussex, whose portrait he was painting. Leaving England in September 1841, with letters of introduction from the Duke, Hart spent a year in Italy producing topographical and architectural sketches as well as small watercolour copies of paintings and frescoes. Originally he intended to publish some of his travel drawings as engravings but instead they formed the basis for a number of paintings of Italian history and interiors.
