A truly remarkable original lithograph by Joseph Pennell, this image measures 21 1/8 x 16 5/8 inches, published in 1913 in a very small edition of 50, pencil signed, from Pennell's series of lithographs created in his travels through Italy and Greece. Printed on a cream colored laid type paper with the watermark "Ingres PMF Italia". In his book "In the Land of Temples", Pennell writes of this image, "Night was falling as I was coming back from drawing by the river Ilissos. The subject was the most impressive I saw in the Land of Temples, and in the gathering darkness I drew it as well as I could."
