    There is something nostalgic and even retrospective about these two Victorian images created by English artists abroad in the 19th century.  Neither work is expensive.  Each one features at the next Christie’s Interiors sale at South Kensington in London on August 9.

    The work on the left is by Elijah Walton (1832-1880).  No prizes for guessing the title of this pencil watercolour and body colour on paper.  An Alpine Landscape  is estimated at just £400-600.  The other work, which Christie’s have catalogued as English School 1847 is called Cypresses on the Bosphorus, inscribed and dated ‘Cyprepes – on The Bosphorus 1847’ (on the mount).  It is unframed and the lot includes another image of the mouth of the Bosphous at the entrance to the Black Sea by W.B. Urmston.  The estimate is £500-700.  Both images are © Christie’s Images Limited 2011.
