Revue de presse :

'The personal, often delightfully idiosyncratic, response of an extraordinary man to a remarkable country and its people.' --Vivien Noakes

'As a landscape painter he observed exactly and caught atmosphere in a most charming style. He travelled off the beaten track of his generation in pursuit of themes and wrote well and racily about what he saw... so happy a combination of writer and painter in one man puts him high among companionable travel authors --The Times

Présentation de l'éditeur :

There is luxury and inconvenience on the one hand, liberty, hard living and filth on the other . So Edward Lear described the mysterious and often misunderstood country of Albania. Edward Lear s travels through Albania and Macedonia in 1848 came about when an outbreak of cholera closed off all other routes out of Salonica - the port in which he arrives as these journals begin - setting him off on this unusual adventure. His meticulous journals offer a unique insight into the Balkans in this period; the difficulties and romance of travelling in Albania - especially as an Englishman, visiting places never previously seen by foreigners; and the profound effect of the landscape and its people on an artist's mind. Illustrated with the artist's own paintings and suffused with a unique charm, Edward Lear in Albania catalogues his idiosyncratic observations of this beautiful and unknown land. Including vivid insights into the environment, culture and politics of the period, these Journals offer an intimate portrait of a wild yet captivating corner of Europe.
