Quarries near Carrara, July 1857 [Italy]

Mounted in album with PAI4673-PAI4689, PAI4691-PAI4716.; No.18. 12.; Technique includes scraped highlights. No. 18 in Fanshawe's Baltic and later album, 1843-1883. Captioned by the artist on the album page below the image, as title. The sixth of a series of drawings of the Mediterranean fleet's summer cruise, from Malta and back, between 3 June and 7 November 1857.Carrara, in Tuscany, Italy, has been famous since Roman times for the white or blue-gray marble quarried there. It is on the Carrione river, about 100 km west-north-west of Florence. Fanshawe, in the 'Centurion', spent a ' pleasant week' at La Spezia in July 1857 with the 'Conqueror' under his friend Captain Yelverton, while the Mediterranean commander-in-chief, Admiral Lord Lyons, was at Genoa: they both took a day out to go see the marble quarries before making rendezvous with Lyons and sailing for Toulon. (Fanshawe [1904] p.353).
