Part of the Portico of Edfou.
Roberts stunning lithograph of the pronaos of the Temple of Edfu. From David Roberts’ journal, Nov 23 1838: ‘To draw the [pronaos] I was obliged to sit in the sun protected only by a sunshade and the temperature reached 98 degrees in the shade today. I fear I did not make a very good job of it, but this collonade is so lovely, I could not resist it.’ Engraved by Haghe, Louis.
