British painter Edward Lear appears regularly on this blog. He has painted the peninsula beautifully.This monk is facing the mountain on the left Stavronikita.More or less the same location.
From this sketch we know that Lear drew this on a boat whilst travelling from Thesaloniki to Kavala in 1839.
This watercoulour was made on his trip from Corfu to Athos in 1856. I am not sure it is actually on the Holy Mountain. The last one is made in 1839 and clearly not on Athos. It showes the monasteries of Meteora.
