Joseph Pennell, Lithograph, "Eleusis"
Joseph Pennell, American, 1857-1926, "Eleusis: The Pavement of the Temple". This is a gorgeous original lithograph of ancient Greek ruins by Joseph Pennell, from his series "In the Land of Temples", based on his travels through Greece and Italy. The image size is 16 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches, published in 1913 in a very small edition of 50, printed on a watermarked wove type paper, pencil signed. In his book "In the Land of Temples", Pennell writes of this print "Swept away is everything, mysteries and alló all that remains is the great pavement on which stand the stumps of columns; yet I doubt if it was finer ever. And the long drive out over the sacred way, the long, quiet day; and the long drive back, with the Acropolis growing more and more majestic in the twilight, were perfect."
