Henry Andrew Harper was a British orientalist painter, traveller and writer. A member of the "British Research Foundation", his paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. In 1872 Harper spent time in Palestine and Cairo, painting landscapes. His connection to the Middle East stemmed from his interest in biblical events. His travel books, "An Artist’s Walks in Bible Lands" and "Walks in Palestine", were published and gained wide popularity and recognition, as well as other documentary travel books on the Land of Israel.
He was a watercolor painter and the painting we present is one of the few made in oil on canvas. This subject takes up the old city of Jerusalem seen from the Mount of Olives near the Garden of Gethsemane, a small olive grove just outside the city in which Jesus, according to the Gospels, retired after the Last Supper.
