Views in Spain: Comprising Granada and Andalusia with the Palace of the Alhambra.
Robert Jennings, Lodnon 1836 - Printed title and contents pp., 42 fine engraved views to include frontispiece, occasional foxing heavy in places, contemporary half morocco, gilt title, gilt edges, rubbed binding, from drawings by David Roberts, Engraved by Allen, J.B., Armytage [and others]. David Roberts RA (24 October 1796 – 25 November 1864) was a Scottish painter. He is especially known for a prolific series of detailed lithograph prints of Egypt and the Near East that he produced from sketches he made during long tours of the region (1838–1840). These and his large oil paintings of similar subjects made him a prominent Orientalist painter. He was elected as a Royal Academician in 1841. In 1832 he travelled in Spain and Tangiers. He returned at the end of 1833 with a supply of sketches that he elaborated into attractive and popular paintings. The British Institution exhibited his Interior of Seville Cathedral in 1834, and he sold it for £300. He executed a fine series of Spanish illustrations for the Landscape Annual of 1836. Then in 1837 a selection of his Picturesque Sketches in Spain was reproduced by lithography. [Wikipedia]. Two copies are listed at Copac. Size: Folio [Attributes: Hard Cover]
