A Sense of Wonder

David Roberts, originally uploaded by nrillustration.

David Roberts was a Scottish painter who created images from his intensive travels in Egypt and the Near East during the 1800s. These paintings are stunning on both an artistic and historical level. The images themselves are beautifully composed, painted with skillful detail and a sensitive eye for color and lighting. Historically they depict an exotic landscape that seems to convey the sense of wonder, discovery and mystery Roberts must have felt during his travels.
