David Roberts, Scottish painter. By 1832 Roberts had established a reputation as an important architectural artist. In 1838, Roberts travelled to Egypt and produced a great number of sketches. He developed these into watercolors, which were the basis for the series of 247 lithographs called "The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia", published between 1842 and 1849. Llithographs by Louis Haghe, who would figured prominently inRoberts' success. The Belgium-born Louis Haghe is the un-sung hero of the art works. Haghe followed Roberts's original sketches closely. Each print often required more than one stone (all done in reverse to the original) to capture different tones, e.g. black, white, ochre, and pink or tan. United Kingdom
