Selina Bracebridge (née Mills) was a favourite pupil of Samuel Prout. She first travelled to the near East in the 1830s. Her own work is very much in the tradition of the gentleman traveller/illustrator. She painted whenever she travelled (which was extensively). Although an amateur, her best work can be extremely engaging and competent, as this highly finished example demonstrates.
