Orientalism   •   David Roberts @ Wikipedia

Born into difficult economic conditions, David Roberts started painting surfaces at the age of eight. With the imitation of wood and marble David contributed to the household income of the family Roberts. Roberts began an apprenticeship with a decorative painter, left his Scottish home and made a name for himself as a painter for stage decorations. David had already made it to the best theaters in London when he exhibited his first oil painting in 1824.

Roberts first attracted a great deal of attention with the painting "The Interior of the Cathedral at Rouen". The talent David revealed with this painting moved him to devote himself to studio painting. Private assignments enabled David Roberts to fulfill his second passion, traveling. He regularly returned to Scotland, but also visited Germany, the Netherlands and France on his way to the Orient.

The impressions of his travels Roberts processed in his most important works. "The Isis Temple on the Island of Philes" shows the impressive architecture of the building and thus testified to Egyptian culture. Not only did David Roberts present his travel sketches as illustrations on a regular basis, he also interpreted the experience and became the author of a series of impressive travel guides. The culmination of his journey was a ride on the Nile. Robert's talent for landscape painting is clearly shown in the painting "approaching sandstorm in Giza". © Meisterdrucke
