Coit Drawing #7

Daniel Wadsworth Coit - 1825

"Lima from the Barrio with River Rimac" is written at the top of the drawing which shows the river in the foreground and the city in the background with some of the same buildings Coit depicts in his other drawings. A large tree at the right appears to be along side a wall topped by a walk leading to possible dwellings. The sky appears to be done in watercolor.
