Porto Portese – View from a tent

Porto Portese is a small, quiet town on the west coast of Lake Garda in Italy. There is a little harbour and a stony beach there and it is a stopping off point for the Lake Garda ferry. There are also two churches and a ruined castle as well as a few restaurants and bars. Here is a view looking down over it:


This view looks very similar to that done by an artist called P.Boggon back in 1982. Written in pencil at the bottom of this coloured pencil drawing are the words “Towards Port Portese from outside tent. Canvas hols, Lake Garda 1982”.

I can’t find out anything about P. Boggon but I think he was quite a talented artist.
