David Roberts (1796 – 1864) - an artist in Spain

Scottish artist David Roberts (1796 – 1864) is especially known for his detailed lithograph prints of Egypt and the Near East. These and his large oil paintings of similar subjects, made him a prominent Orientalist painter. 

In the 1820s he produced English and Scottish scenes as well as painted views of prominent buildings in France and the Low Countries.

Between 1832 and 1833 he traveled in Spain and Tangiers and produced quite a number of paintings, some of which are shown below.
