In 1805, Edward Dodwell, an Anglo-Irish classical scholar, and Simone Pomardi, an Italian artist, spent fifteen months traveling together, doing 1000 drawings of the ruins and landscapes of Greece. The drawings, kept safe by Dodwell's descendants, are in excellent condition, and the collection creates a vivid picture of the people, countryside, and antiquities of Greece at the time when it was still part of the Ottoman empire.
