AUC Egypt Architecture Landscapes

AUC Egypt Architecture Landscapes

Left to Right: His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Mohammed Al-Qasimi and AUC President David Arnold. Inspired by the stunning landscapes, architecture and historical landmarks, Scottish architect David Roberts chronicled his journeys through Egypt in 1838 and 1839 with sketches that evolved into a series of world famous lithographic works. Published between 1842 and1848, these sketches are part of an extraordinary collection acquired by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Mohammed Al-Qasimi, ruler of Sharjah and member of the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates. Now, through the generosity of HH Al-Qasimi, 52 of Roberts’ lithographs have been made available on loan to AUC’s Sharjah Art Gallery, AUC Center for the Arts at AUC New Cairo until April 8.
