An important group of watercolours by David Roberts from a distinguished private collection includes views of Tangiers, Cairo, Suez, Petra, Jerusalem and Agra, as well as of the great Egyptian temples of Abu Simbel and Philae. A trio of watercolours by Carl Haag depicts the rarely painted Muslim shrine of the Dome of the Rock in the old city of Jerusalem, while another watercolour by Haag, executed on a grand scale, provides a unique historical record of the Temple of the Sun at Palmyra.
Along with paintings by Ben Marshall, Fredrick Arthur Bridgman, Léon Belly, Raphael von Ambros, Jacques Majorelle, to name just a few, and sculptures including by Pietro Calvi and Charles Cordier, the sale offers fascinating insights into the topographies, people, cultures, and customs of Turkey, the Levant, Egypt, North Africa and the wider Islamic world.
