David Roberts  RA

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish-born artist who travelled extensively. One of the 19th Century's best known painters of architectural subjects, he was prolific both in oil and watercolour, and many of his works were reproduced by lithography and hand coloured at the time.

In 1838 he embarked on a painting expedition to Eqypt and the Holy Land. These lithographs are from the outstanding series he completed on his return, with the assistance of Louis Hague.

"Entrance to the Tomb of the Kings, Jerusalem - 1838"

"Chapel on the Summit of Mount Sanai - 1838"

"Fortress of Akabah, Arabia - 1839"
