Lot 346


Edward Roper Stapleton Sandys, 
British / New Zealander 1845-1909- 

Five landscape views in Cameroon and Guatemala; 

each charcoal heightened with scratching out on paper, each signed 'E Sandys', the first inscribed and dated 'The Cameroons River - 1877 / Ambas Bay - Gulf of Biafra / W. Africa -' verso, the second inscribed and dated 'Aden - 1882 / on the road to the Fantes [?]' verso, the third inscribed and dated 'Ambas Bay / Cameroon Mt / W. Coast of Africa / 1878' verso, the fourth inscribed 'The road to Guatemala Antigua / "Agua" on the left / "Fuego" on the right' verso, the fifth inscribed 'View of Guatemala / from San Rafael' verso, 54.7 x 75.7 cm. and smaller, five (5)., (unframed). 

Private Collection, UK. 

Sandys was the paymaster and surveyor on the 'HMS Opal', commanded by Captain Bosanquet, which sailed around the coast of New Zealand in the 1880s. He produced a number of watercolours depicting the wildlife and landscapes which he encountered over the course of his travels. The present works, though typical of Sandys' output in technique, differ somewhat in their subject, depicting settings not in New Zealand, but as far afield as Cameroon and Guatemala.
