Colorful lithograph of the city Shechem, "Nablous Ancient Shechem," created and signed by David Roberts. The work is described and dated in plate 1839, published by F.G.MOON London 1844.

David Roberts [1796-1864] was an English artist. He was one of the pioneering artists who came to paint in Palestine in order to circulate his paintings among the European public. Roberts visited Palestine between 1838-1840 and painted scenes from the Holy Land in watercolor and oil paints. His paintings quickly became the most beautiful painted at the time. On returning to England, he prepared lithographs based on his paintings at Louis Haghe, between the years 1842-1849.
