Hildebrandt, was born in Gdansk, and was evidently keen on travel. He made numerous journeys visiting the Americas (North and South), most of the Mediterranean countries, Asia Minor, India, China, Japan and crossing the Pacific: the present image is from a sketch that was probably made as a result of his tour of 1862 to 1864.
