'Vue prise a Cauteretz. Hautes Pyr
Plate 25. This print shows the Valley of Cauteretz as described in Alfred, Lord Tennyson in 1861 in his poem of the same name. John Herschel, encouraged by his mother and later his wife and many of his scientific contemporaries was very interested in poetry even writing some of his own. Tennyson in addition shared with John a mutual friend in the photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. The acquisition of this print then may have been the result of multiple overlapping interests, showing as it does an area of France John had visited in the 1820s, an area also described in a Tennyson poem.
