Fifth in a continuing series, this handsome portfolio contains ten fine art prints of David Roberts' superb lithographs of Egypt's monumental pyramids and the beautiful landscape of the Sinai Peninsula, selected from Egypt: Yesterday and Today (AUC Press, 1996). Between 1842 and 1849, on thebasis of sketches made on the spot and aided by his excellent memory, Roberts produced the drawings that Louis Haghe turned into prints published by Francis Graham Moon. These lithographs appeared in the original hand-painted deluxe edition.Suitable for framing, they reproduce scenes of the mountain wilderness and the monastery of Sinai with an accuracy that today would be called photographic. This high-quality collection of prints celebrate the epic grandeur and fine detail of Roberts' views, in a format that complements hisextraordinary artistic achievements.
David Roberts (17961864) was one of the most acclaimed landscape painters of his time. He made an extended trip to Egypt and the Holy Land in 183839, during which he made the series of drawings that brought him lasting fame
