From Baron Taylor's Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l'ancienne France, vol. 2. A painter of Romantic landscapes, Bonington spent much of his short life in France and was one of the few English artists to contribute to the Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l'ancienne France. He made this lithograph, depicting a castle in the region of Franche-Comté near the eastern border, after one of Baron Taylor’s own drawings. The printer, Engelmann, developed a special wash technique that allowed him to reproduce Bonington’s subtle tonal effects, such as the fog wreathing the ruins.
