The Village of Koomarsen on the Left Hand Range, The Kooloo and Kote Kangra ranges in the distance

Artist: Scott, Mrs WLL

Medium: Lithograph

Date: 1852

Shelfmark: X670(14)

Item number: Plate 14

Genre: Print

This lithograph was made from plate 14 of 'Views in the Himalayas' by Mrs WLL Scott. It was sketched from the verandah of the staging bungalow at Kotgarh in the Himalayas, at sunset. In the middle distance is the village of Kumarsain, and on a high hill behind is the Ramgarh Fort of Kulu. Providing background are the Kangra mountains and the snow ranges of the High Himalayas.

Mrs Scott wrote of the light in the mountains, which changed hourly and transformed the appearance of the region radically. She confessed to finding it difficult to convey the beauty of these changes on paper.
