The subject is from an unfinished sketch by Thomas William Bowler. An example of artwork for a publication, with notes on half-tone and two colours;British landscape painter Thomas William Bowler was one of the most renowned artists working in South Africa during the nineteenth century. After a brief stint as an assistant astronomer in the Cape of Good Hope, Bowler settled in Cape Town, where he established a reputation as a talented artist and drawing teacher. During his life, he published numerous lithographs of Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope and exhibited several of his drawings at the Society of British Artists in 1857 and the Royal Academy in 1860.
