Roberts04 ~ Ruins of a Christian Church in the Grand Court of the Temple of Medinet Abou ~ Hand colored lithograph ~ Like the French savants, Roberts was awed by the size and beauty of this massive temple which can be found illustrated in Description de L'Egypte in Volume II Plate 14. Roberts artistic use of shadow and light provides a sense of depth while the French provide a much more detailed and scientific documentation of the carved hieroglyphs and Osiris statues.
