The precise and delicate line in Duncan’s watercolours can be attributed to his early work as an engraver. His success in this medium saw him employed as a wood engraver for the Illustrated London News from 1843 to 1851. Duncan exhibited regularly at both the ‘Old’ and ‘New’ watercolour societies between 1835 and 1882.

Duncan’s sketching tours were taken mainly within the British Isles, although he crossed to France and Holland in 1840, the year of this watercolour, and visited Italy in 1865. The present watercolour may be ‘Old Houses, Strasbourg’ exhibited at the New Watercolour Society in 1840, no. 26. The view may be looking along the rue du Bain aux Plantes.
