David Roberts - part 5

David Roberts R.A. © Royal Academy of Arts, London 
David Roberts RA (1796 – 1864) was a Scottish painter. He is especially known for a prolific series of detailed lithographic prints of Egypt and the Near East that he produced as watercolour sketches he made during long tours of the region between 1838 and 1840. These, along with his large format oil paintings of similar subjects, made him a prominent Orientalist artist. He became a Royal Academician in 1841.

For more information on Roberts and for earlier works, see part 1 to 4 also.
