This group of eight drawings were made by Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Batty (1789-1848). Seven presumably came from the same sketchbook; they are identical in size and when arranged by date make a coherent journey. As Batty included the day of the week in some of his dating (E.g. ‘Saturday 18th July’) his Tour can be pinned down to a handful of possible years. He served in the Peninsular War and at Waterloo, but could have made a trip in 1818. However, we feel 1829 (the next year in which there was a Saturday 18th July, Sunday 19th etc.) is the most likely.

Although an amateur Batty illustrated a number of continental travel books throughout the 1820s. He was a confident and accomplished draughtsman. His manner is close to John Glover’s, from whom he must have taken lessons. So too must his sister Elizabeth, whose drawings of Italy we showed in 2019 and can be seen HERE.
