Footnotes

  • "Salzenberg was a student of Karl Friedrich von Schinkel and practised as an architect at Berlin. In 1848 he travelled to Constantinople to take advantage of Fossati's restoration to the fabric of St. Sophia, in order to examine the building closely. Salzenberg spent five months in Constantinople and was able to make detailed drawings of mosaics in the church which had been brought to light during the works in progress. These mosaics were later covered over with plaster and by 1850 none were visible. Salzenberg's important work remains the major source of information about the mosaics of St. Sophia" (Blackmer).

    PROVENANCE:
    Bookplate of architect Sir A.E. Richardson (1880-1964)
