‘A brighter Hellas’: rediscovering Greece in the 19th century

Janina, from the Coulia

Lithographed view of the city with a group of male figures chatting in the foregroundJanina, from the Coulia"The broken arches of this now ruined Palace form a bold frame to the magnificent external view of the fortress and lake of Janina. Beyond is the island so celebrated in Ali Pasha’s history, and the scene of his tragedy. In the far distance, rising perpendicular from the lake, is a high mountain, one of the first ridges of the mighty Pindus. The Mosques, adorned with their minarets and cypresses, add a rich finish to this charming scene."

From a description by the artist, George de la Poer Beresford.
