This video features the incredible artwork of Louis Haghe, a Belgian man who was born in 1806 and died in 1885. Together with another man called William Day, he formed a professional partnership and they became the most famous early Victorian firm of lithographic printing in London. They created and printed lithographs dealing with a wide range of subjects, from hunting scenes to topographical views and architecture. They were pioneers and their work was accurate, life-like and breathtaking. In 1838, Day and Hague were appointed Lithographers to the Queen. Haghe’s most ambitious project was providing 250 images for David Robert’s book ‘The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia, printed between 1842 and 1849. The pictures of Egypt and Nubia were also released in a number of volumes and I feature many of the best pictures in this video. As you will soon see, his pictures are without doubt the best artistic record of the monuments of ancient Egypt and Nubia, as they looked in the first half of the 1800s. We see iconic images of The Sphinx, the pyramids of Egypt, Karnak, The Temple of Luxor, Dendera and so much more. Matt from Ancient Architects doesn't narrate over most of this video video, but you view Haghe’s original work to the music of Ross Bugden.
