David Roberts [1796-1864] was an English artist. He was a pioneer who came to draw in Palestine in order to distribute his works amongst the Europeans. Roberts visited Palestine between 1838-1840 and painted scenes from the Holy Land in watercolors and oils. His are the most beautiful works from the time. When he returned to Britain, he prepared lithographs from his works with Louis Haghe, between 1842-1849
