Finely executed water colour made by Henri Dieth of a charming street scene in Peking. The water colour is made after Eduard Hildebrandt (1818-1869). Hildebrandt, was born in Gdansk, and made numerous journeys visiting the Americas, most of the Mediterranean countries, Asia Minor, India, China, Japan and crossing the Pacific: the present water colour of a bustling thoroughfare in the cosmopolitan city of Peking is from a sketch that was probably made as a result of his visit to China in between 1862 to 1864. This scene among others were published in 1871-1874 by R. Wagner as a collection of chromolithographs entitled "Reise um die Erde" (Journey Around the Earth).
