Artist Biography

David Roberts' most famous work, Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, & Nubia, was published by E. G. Moon in London between 1846 and 1849. This work is known for its extremely detailed duotone lithographed plates, which depict various scenes of the Holy Land and the Middle East. Roberts journeyed to the Holy Land in 1838 where he spent much time depicting the architecture, costumes, and landscapes that he found there. The culmination of all his efforts, The Holy Land..., is indeed one of the greatest travel works ever completed. The plates are original duotone lithographs from the folio edition.
