Plate 250 Mosque of Sultan Hassan, Great Square of Rameyleh After David Roberts
  • Plate 250 Mosque of Sultan Hassan, Great Square of Rameyleh After David Roberts

    This is the last lithograph in the Egyptian set by David Roberts and it is remarkable architectural study. On his arrival into Cairo this was one of the first drawings that Roberts made. It depicts the great Mosque of Sultan Hassan that was built between 1356 and 1363. Its towering minaret is still the largest in Cairo and the building is considered one of the finest works of Islamic architecture in the world.
