Drawing, Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives
This is a Drawing. We acquired it in 1917. Its medium is brush and oil, pen and black ink, graphite on paperboard. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
Frederic Church’s travels to the Middle East in 1867–69 provided the itinerary for de Forest’s tour of the region in 1875–76, when he attempted to visit all the settings that Church had painted. De Forest sketched an oil landscape with Jerusalem’s Temple Mount (as seen from further up the hill) on March 15, 1876.
