Namur, Belgium

Namur, Belgium
WILLIAM CALLOW RWS (1812-1908)

Description / Expertise: Namur is situated at the confluence of the rivers Meuse and Sambre. Callow’s view shows the high walls of the Citadel on the left bank of the Meuse, looking towards the arched Pont de Jambes.

Callow settled in Paris in 1829, and there his reputation as a watercolour painter flourished. Between 1835 and 1840 Callow travelled around France, Germany and Switzerland gathering a wealth of subject-matter for later finished watercolours, and keeping detailed diaries of his visits.
