In the nineteenth century “The Orient” was a source of attraction for many Europeans. The Holy-land had it’s own special appeal and many artists were drawn to it. The focus was on Jerusalem with it’s dramatic topography, surrounded by hills and the old city with it’s romantic wall and temples.
Views of Jerusalem continue to be a popular theme till this very day.
