Interlaken by H.E. Bush
Henry Stratton Bush, who painted these two water colours of Interlaken and Stanbach Fall, retired as a Major in the army in 1864. He had an interesting career, fighting in the Crimea and travelling to the West Indies during which time he often had paper and paint to hand. This interest in travel continued as is evident by these pictures painted in September 1866. Interlaken had attracted tourists to Switzerland from the beginning of the 19th Century and a good number of them were British. Although an amateur Bush had a naive skill as an artist and painted for his own pleasure. He often annotated his work recording the location and date.
