Compiled by Henry Sanford Bicknell.
David Roberts (1796-1864) was a prolific painter of architectural and topographical subjects, in oil and watercolor. He was born in Edinburgh, the son of a shoemaker, and began his career as a house painter and scene painter, establishing his reputation in the latter field after a move to Drury Lane Theatre, in London. Much of his later work ensued from sketches Roberts made during tours of France, Spain, and the Middle East.
