DESCRIPTION
Our travels will begin in Tirana and as we canvas the country southbound, exploring and lavishing in the same scenic locations as Lear himself. We will be making stops in the towns and villages Lear himself painted.

There is “luxury and convenience on the one hand, liberty, hard living and filth on the other.” So Edward Lear described the mysterious and often misunderstood country of Albania. Edward Lear travel through Albania and Macedonia in 1848. Lavishly illustrated by the artist’s own paintings and suffused with a unique charm, Edward Lear in Albania catalogues idiosyncratic observations of this beautiful and unknown land. Including vivid insights into the environment, culture and politics of the period, these journals offer an intimate portrait of a wild yet captivating corner of Europe.
