Thomas Allom (British, 1804-1872) The ancient church of St. John with the Citadel. Pergamos; The ruins of Laodicea a pair, the first signed 'Tho s . Allom' (lower right), and extensively inscribed on old labels on the reverse oil on canvas, each 46 x 72cm (18 1/8 x 28 3/8in). (2) Footnotes PROVENANCE: Sale, Christie's, London, 8 February 1899, lot 46 (2 of 7) Property of Lady Llangattock Private collection ENGRAVED: J. Cousen (Pergamos) and E. Brandard (Laodicea) for G. Virtue, 1863. Thomas Allom was born in March 1804. Articled to the architect Francis Goodwin, he attended the Royal Academy schools as an architectural student from 1828. He was a founder of the Royal Institute of British Architects, of which he became a Fellow in 1860. His reputation largely rests with his numerous designs for albums of topographical steel- engravings that were mostly published between 1828-1845 when he travelled extensively in Great Britain, Belgium France and Turkey. Standing high above the Aegean Sea sit the ruins of the ancient Greek city of Pergamon. Although the majority of its superb intact monuments can now be found in Berlin's Pergamon Museum, enough remains of the acropolis for the visitor to sense the former greatness of the city that once rivaled Alexandria, Ephesus and Antioch in culture and commerce. Today the site can be reached from the steep and winding road that leads from the modern Turkish city of Bergama just a few miles away. Upon reaching the ruins, the commanding panoramic view from Pergamon make it easy to understand how this city once dominated the entire region. It was a proud city in its time, its monuments and building were constructed of high-quality white marble in the finest Hellenistic style, and its library rivaled that of the famed library of Alexandria in Egypt. A city in the western part of Asia Minor, the ruins of which lie near Denizli, about 150 km east of Ephesus, Laodicea was originally known as Diospolis but was evidently rebuilt in the third century BC by Antiochus II and renamed after his wife Laodice. Situated in the fertile valley of the Lycus River, the city lay at the crossroads of major trade routes and was linked by road with cities such as Ephesus and Pergamon. Even though it had no permanent natural water supply, Laodicea enjoyed great prosperity as a manufacturing and banking centre. During the reign of Nero, the city suffered extensive earthquake damage; however, according to Tacitus, its great wealth enabled it to be rebuilt without any financial aid from Rome. The glossy black wool of Laodicea and the garments made there were widely celebrated; it was the seat of a famous medical school. During the time of St. John, Laodicea, like Pergamon, was considered one of the seven most important churches in Christianity.

Thomas Allom (British, 1804-1872) The Palace of Saïd Pasha, on one of the Rapids of the Bosphorous watercolour 19.5 x 30cm (7 11/16 x 11 13/16in). Footnotes PROVENANCE: with Robert Dunthorne, The Rembrandt Gallery, 5 Vigo Street, London Allom arrived in Istanbul in 1834 and was warmly received by the British ambassador, Lord Strangford. He travelled throughout the city and hinterland to find subjects for his drawings and then on to Syria and Palestine. The present subject was engraved by J.W.Lowry for R. Walsh, Constantinople and the scenery of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor , plate 26 (London, 1838). Walsh writes 'The first objects that present themselves on ascending the Bosphorus, are the palaces of several female members of the imperial family, hanging, as it were, over the water...The windows are closed up with more than Turkish jealousy. The lattices are dense and impervious to all view, leaving only one minute aperture, to which the inmate of the harem applies her eye when she wishes to contemplate the busy and living picture continually before her.'
