EDITORS COMMENTS
The captivating print showcases the Rock-Cut Cistern under Robinsons Arch in Jerusalem, captured in 1871 by William Crimea Simpson. This remarkable artwork, created with watercolor and pencil on paper, is a valuable contribution to the collection of the Palestine Exploration Fund based in London. Robinsons Arch stands as a testament to Herod's architectural prowess, serving as the entrance to the Royal Colonnade. The cistern beneath it holds secrets waiting to be unraveled by intrepid explorers and archaeologists alike. Illuminated by flickering candlelight, this underground marvel beckons us into its depths. This image evokes a sense of adventure and discovery as we imagine ourselves stepping into this ancient world. It transports us back to a time when mining and excavation were essential tools for uncovering history's mysteries. As we gaze upon this painting, we are reminded of Israel's rich archaeological heritage and its abundance of hidden caves and tunnels awaiting exploration. The meticulous detail captured by Simpson invites us to embark on an archaeological journey through time. With every stroke of his brush or pencil mark on paper, Simpson breathes life into this historical scene. His work serves as a visual map guiding us through an archaeological site that holds countless stories yet untold. In conclusion, this extraordinary piece from Bridgeman Images not only celebrates artistry but also pays homage to those who dedicate their lives to unearthing our past.
