Historical Reconstructions Part XVI

Joe Rohrer

I was hard pressed to find a home page for this Swiss illustrator that captivated me with his amazing accuracy.  He’s the first historical illustrator that I’ve seen describe himself as a Scientific Illustrator.  His focus is historical building reconstructions and archaeological biographies. You can find reference to his current credentials here.

Historical Reconstructions Part XV

André Houot

There is little to no info about this amazing illustrator online.  A wiki page has a brief synopsis on him, but I was hard pressed to find any of his work for sale.  Many of these pieces I think come from work he did maybe in the early 90’s, so maybe this compilation is just a small glimpse of his work that fits nicely into my historical reconstruction category.

Historical Reconstructions Part XIV

Ivan Lapper

I stumbled upon Ivan Lapper while researching another artist.  It usually works that way.  Many of these good images came from heritage sites which allowed me to compile some of these great work here for future reference.

Historical Reconstructions Part XI

Jean-Claude Golvin

This is the last of my Jean-Claude Golvin that I have.  Future historical reconstructions will be filled with other great artists that fit into this category,  because I love imagining the environment that our ancestors lived in.  Thank you Golvin for inspiring me to start this category and to dream bigger.

Historical Reconstructions Part VII

Jean-Claude Golvin

Every day I see them building the second tallest building on the west coast of the United States here in downtown San Francisco and I can’t help but wonder if these structures will still be standing in a couple thousand years like the Roman aqueducts shown at the top. If so will they hold the same mystique as they are dwarfed by the structures of that distant future.
