Edward lear is best know for his nonsense verse and other writings, but he was also wisely traveled and an accomplished painter. He visited the areas of Madras (modern Channai) in Tamil Nadu, India and painted this wonderful watercolor of the shore temples that were carved from single pieces of granite.
The original hangs in thr Philadelphia Museum of Art.
