Extraordinary pair of large color lithographs View of the city of Jaffa (Tel Aviv) and Remains of a Triumphal Arch (Petra). They are signed on the plate David Roberts and Lith. Louis Haghe. David Roberts R. A. (1796 - 1864) was a Scottish orientalist painter best known for his detailed depictions of Egypt and the Middle East. The son of a shoemaker, Roberts became a member of the Royal Academy and enjoyed great success in his lifetime. The subjects, dates, artist and lithographer names are written in script, worked into the image, on the bottom edge of the plate. According to these inscriptions, these scenes were captured in 1839. David Roberts worked with lithographer Louis Hague from 1842 to 1849 to produce the plates. He financed his work through subscriptions, which he solicited himself, and subscriber number one was Queen Victoria. Her complete set is still in the Royal Collection.

Lithographs are in very good used condition with light toning and mounted on passepartout - mat boards; losses and imperfections to frames as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
