Lisbon – Aqueduct from the Garden of the Mai d’Aqua.
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: ‘Lisbon. Rua do Arco das agoas livres. This view represents the termination of the Aqueduct within the walls of the Town. The point of view is from the lofty terraced garden of the Mai d’Agoa, or great Reservoir, literally the Mother of Waters.’ Engraved by HAGHE, L.
