Catalogue Note

This detailed watercolour is connected with Callow's walking tour in France, carried out with a German friend, Herr Soherr, in the summer of 1836. The pair set off from Paris on the 6th June and travelled along the River Loire. They arrived at Tours on the 17th June.

An on-the-spot study for this watercolour was sold in these rooms on 26th March 2004, lot 121, while there is another finished view of the town, seen from a different angle, in the Castle Museum, Nottingham.1
