'Callina [Colina], 15 miles north of Santiago, Jany 13th 1851' [Chile]

PAI4656
Fine art

Object details:

Object ID PAI4656
Description No. 49 in Fanshawe's Pacific album, 1849 - 52. Captioned by the artist on the album page below the image, as title. This is the fourth of seven drawings (PAI4653-PAI4659) which record Fanshawe's inland excursion to see the Andes, while his ship 'Daphne' was at Valparaiso over the winter of 1850-51. For the general circumstances see PAI4563. Fanshawe only briefly described this location in his letter to his wife of 19 January: 'Leaving Santiago on Monday 13th, we halted at a very pretty village called Colina, near which are hot springs, and slept at Chacabuco, fifteen miles further on' (Fanshawe [1904], p. 267). Colina now lies on Route 57 north of Santiago, but the church shown here does not appear to survive.
Date made 15 January 1851
