Drawings by David Roberts

Picturesque Sketches in Spain Taken During the Years 1832 & 1833

David Roberts (1796–1864, Scotland) was a Scottish landscape painter, known for a prolific series of detailed lithograph prints of Egypt and the Near East that he produced from sketches he made during long tours of the region (1838–1840). These and his large oil paintings of similar subjects made him a prominent Orientalist painter. He was elected as a Royal Academician in 1841. (source: insipit)
