LE CAPELAIN, John.
Cave at Gréve au Lançon, Jersey.
One of a series of 26 views published in 1847 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s visit to Jersey, lithographed by Day & Son, lithographers to the Queen. “Amongst the many caves of this small bay, the one represented is the most striking. Before its dark, dripping entrance stands a natural obelisk of weather-stained granite, and beyond, through an arch of Nature’s turning, is seen the splash of a small but beautiful waterfall, whose music, solitary as the curlew’s note, adds to the wildness of the scene.”
