David Roberts

DAVID ROBERTS

David Roberts was a Scottish painter from Stockbridge, Edinburgh. He was a multi-talented Romantic and Orientalist painter, meaning he painted scenes of the Eastern world. Roberts was foremost a painter, but had also worked as a skilled lithographer, a house painter, and theater set painter. He is most famous for his series of lithographs depicting his tour of Egypt and the surrounding holy cities. Roberts wanted to sketch these scenes to later produce larger paintings of his tour, and they quickly became his magnum opus. Roberts was commended for his use of space, architectural elements, and incredible detail. After his years of travels, Roberts would return to Scotland and work as the principal stage painter of the Royal Theater in Glasgow. He held this position until his death in 1864.
