Crook Of Lune

John W. Archer, Engraver (British, 1806-1864) After Joseph M. Turner, (English, 1775-1851)


"In the richest of valleys, the Lune serpentizes for many a mile, and comes forth ample and clear, through a well-wooded and richly pastured foreground.  Every feature, which constitutes a perfect landscape of the extensive sort, is here not only boldly marked, but also in the best position."
-Thomas Gray, 1769
