At the recommendation of Alexander von Humboldt, King William IV arranged for Eduard Hildebrandt to travel to the United States from 1844-45. He made around 200 watercolour studies whilst he was there, including this sketch of Baltimore. The majority of the American watercolours are now kept in the "Graphische Sammlung" of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin.
