Lot 1158Tielker, Johann Friedrich. Views of the ancient Athens with the Acropolis above the houses of the city
In the foreground, Ottoman rider on the road in front of the gates of the city. Watercoloured ink drawing on paper. Laminated. 61.5 x 132cm. Frame.
Provenance:
Family-owned from the estate of the artist.

From the direct family of the estate of Johann Friederich Tielkers here are three of paper work (Lot 1155/1157/1158) offered insight into the life of a widely travelled artist of the early 19th century. Century give.
Tielker had made in the years before 1800 a name as a painter and engraver of great panoramas of the City, worked for the Berliner Hof, and established himself there with a Copper print. After years in the Baltic States and Russia, where his Panorama of St. Petersburg met on a large Echo, he was able to accompany after 1804 a delegation to China for the time an extraordinary journey, the work of two of the paper reflects: the extraordinary view of Athens is likely to go back on impressions during this trip, as well as the design of a wall painting with motifs from China.
