Description

Carlo Bossoli was a Swiss-born Italian painter and lithographer, who spent his early career in Ukraine. In 1844, at the request of his mother (who was ill), he moved to Milan and opened a studio there. In 1848, he produced popular scenes from "Five Days of Milan".

His mother died the following year, but he remained there until 1853, when an unsuccessful uprising against the Austrians forced him to flee to Turin, which he used as his base of operations for travels to England, France, Spain, Morocco, Germany and Scandinavia.

During those years, he produced an album of paintings, showing views of Crimea, which was published in London by Day & Son. It proved to be very popular due to public interest in the Crimean War.

Virtually chromo-lithographs, the plates in this sumptuously produced book, show when compared with Hullmandel's work 17 years earlier in Boys's Paris, Ghent, etc. 1839, something of the coarsening of effect in later, a more mechanical work (Abbey)

Plates include Sebastopol; Balaklava; Prince Woronzoff's Palace in Alupka; Tartar House in the village of Alupka; Remains of the Genoese Forts at Ciufat-Kale; Kertch; the Bosphorus

Folio, lithographed title, 51 hand colored lithographed plates on 30 leaves
