Forbes (1749-1819), a British artist and writer, known for his writings on India, where he travelled in 1765 for the British East India Company and was resident until 1784. After returning to England he married and toured continental Europe extensively, including a grand tour of Germany, Switzerland, and Italy in 1796 and 1797. This resulted in a series of wonderful watercolours and grisaille drawings, such as these wonderful views of Vienna.
