During the second part of the 1820s, and in addition to English and Scottish scenes, Roberts painted views of prominent buildings in France and the Low Countries. By 1829 he was working full-time as a fine artist, exhibited the ?Departure of the Israelites from Egypt?, in which his style first became apparent. In 1831, the Society of British Artists elected him as their president and finally, in 1832, he began his travels to Spain and Tangiers. He returned at the end of 1833 with a supply of sketches that he elaborated into attractive and popular paintings. The British Institution exhibited his Interior of Seville Cathedral in 1834? He executed a fine series of Spanish illustrations for the Landscape Annual of 1836. Then in 1837 a selection of his ?Picturesque Sketches in Spain? was produced using lithography thus creating the present first edition work. Abbey writes: ?He in fact worked on every stone, the figures in many of them being entirely in his own drawing; ?some? of the stones he erased entirely, so that the work took him seven months, instead of two. ? During this time, J.M.W. Turner managed to persuade him to abandon scene painting and devote himself to becoming a full-time artist. Thus, in 1838, Roberts started on his tour of Egypt, Nubia, the Sinai, the Holy Land, Jordan and Lebanon producing a vast collection of drawings and watercolour sketches. Roberts worked with lithographer Louis Haghe from 1842 to 1849 to produce illustrated plates from these sketches. In 1851 and 1853, Roberts visited Italy. His last volume of illustrations, ?Italy, Classical, Historical and Picturesque?, was published in 1859. Roberts executed, by command of Queen Victoria, a picture of the opening of the Great Exhibition of 1851. In 1858 Roberts was presented with the freedom of the city of Edinburgh. The last years of his life were occupied with a series of views of London from the Thames. , Size : Large folio (548x390 mm), Illustrated with tinted lithograph title depicting the entrance to the chapel, plus twentyfive (25) tinted lithographs of Spanish sceneries, including the palacial fortress in Granada., References : Abbey Travel 152: 'Roberts's first published set of views'; Burch p. 195, Martin Hardie p.247., Notes and list of drawings, blank verso, dedication leaf, titles of plates with names of lithographers; illustrated title, twentyfive (25) tinted lithograph plates.
