Entrance to the temple at Luxor, Egypt. Coloured lithograph by Louis Haghe after David Roberts, 1848 CE.

Wellcome Collection, London.

David Roberts travelled in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly Egypt, from 1838 to 1839 CE. During his journey, Roberts produced a great number of sketches. He developed these into watercolours, which were the basis for the series of 247 lithographs called The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, published between 1842 and 1849 CE.
