George Vivian (1798-1873), draughtsman and painter from London, travelled through Spain and Portugal making sketches of many old buildings and towns. On his return Vivian made the drawings famous publishing a collection of lithographs under the title “Scenery of Portugal & Spain”. The work consists of 33 magnificent drawings on stone by L. Haghe. Vivian selected the most interesting and picturesque scenes for the lithographs, delivering a vivid picture of the countries in the early nineteenth century. Vivian notes: ‘Tail Piece. Coimbra. The Convent of Santa Cruz.’ Engraved by HAGHE, L.
