Fine art prints by Gell, Sir William

Sir William Gell FRS (1777 – 1836) was an English classical archaeologist and illustrator. From 1804 to 1806 he travelled in Greece, the neighbouring islands, and coastal Asia Minor. His numerous drawings of classical ruins and localities, executed with great detail and exactness, are preserved in the British Museum. His best-known work is Pompeiana; the Topography, Edifices and Ornaments of Pompeii, published between 1817 and 1832 they continue to provide valuable information for the study of classical topography.

Our fine art prints are inspired by antique illustrations. We make them with superb pigmented inks and heavyweight German fine art paper made from 100% cotton and spring water.
