Ancient Alexandria

A fellow who 'dabbled' in portrayals of ancient history was, of course, Roy Krenkel. He had great passion for the subject, was very prolific in sketches, drawings and paintings, was top-notch in his ability . . . and barely made any money at it.

Now that would be a collector's series! - to track down all the prints that imagine what the lost wonders of the ancient world looked like. Thanks for posting, as always, your posts are a tonic compared to what is out there.

ToB—Your appreciation is always appreciated!

Yes, I could enjoy a collector's series such as that, or more affordable (slightly) a great coffee table book.
