Full image caption

This view from the top of Greenwich Hill contrasts the pastoral with the urban. Although the scene is largely rural, the sprawl of the city encroaches through the trees. The horizon is dominated by two buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren. To the left of centre are the twin cupolas of the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, and on the right, far in the distance, the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral can be seen.

This print has been attributed to the artist James Duffield Harding, based on the initials J.D.H which appear on it. A landscape painter, lithographer and drawing master, Harding was a pupil of the artist Paul Sandby. He exhibited widely during his lifetime: firstly at the Royal Academy at the age of thirteen and later at the Society of Painters in Water Colours and at the Louvre in Paris.
