Fascinating chromolithographed view of Ancient Jerusalem from the time of King Solomon.

As the title suggests, this is an artistic interpretation of an earlier view of Jerusalem, which has been reinterpreted for modern times (specifically, the late 19th Century).

The image shows a rich verdant image of Jerusalem, with trees and rivers, interspersed with elegant  buildings, walls and gates, drawing names from the Old and New Testament.  Several passages from the New Testament appear near Christ's Ascension.  The roads to various neighboring cities are noted, with several armies in the foreground.

A fabulous and very rare image, reflecting the marriage of the traditional view of Jerusalem in the style of an early Renaissance Italian artist with modern American chromolithography of the late 19th Century.


This is the first example of the view we have seen.

We note an example in the Jay Last collection at the Huntington Library and an example in the Library of Congress.
