The Visions of a City Tree

J. W. North

1867

Wood engraving by the Dalziels

6½ x 5 inches

Illustration for Wayside Posies, p.39.

This illustration exemplifies North's interest in unconventional views; valuing the commonplace, he finds beauty in scenes which are not Picturesque in the traditional way, and form a distinct contrast to the art of Myles Birket Foster.
