Comments: Beautiful view of the alleged site of Jesus' first public miracle, turning water into wine, from David Roberts' "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia". Born in Scotland, Roberts (1796-1864) gained renown as a landscape artist from documenting his extensive travels through Spain and the Near and Middle East. His most well known work, "Views in the Holy Land...Egypt and Nubia" illustrates Roberts' trip in 1838-39. The subsequent publication was issued in 41 parts between 1842 and 1849. This magnificent set was a collaborative project between Roberts and the skilled printer Louis Haghe (1806-1885) and is recognized as one of the most important lithographic works of the 19th century. Minor chips and a few small tears along edges and corners, image unaffected.
