Several Large Flies

Edward Lear, L is much disturbed by several large flies, a drawing in pen and ink
This jolly sketch, in the manner of his comic illustrations, records an incident on a journey through Italy with his servant Giorgio Kokoli (‘K’). This is one of twenty-one from the series in the British Museum’s collections; they picture the mundane frustrations of the traveller with whimsical humour.
[I’m not so sure the journey was with Giorgio – Marco]
