Souvenirs





Dromos, or outer Court of the Great Temple at Edfou in Upper Egypt by David Roberts, RA 1796-1864. Dated 1840 and inscribed 'EDFOU, UPPER EGYPT'



Roberts painted watercolors of ruins in Egypt and reproduced them as lithographs and sold them in London to disciples of the Grand Tour.

Roberts work is so detailed - well worth a long look.
