Ludwig Lange was one of many German artists and architects who flocked to Greece after the accession of the modern state’s first king, the Bavarian Otto. Lange lived in Athens from 1834 to 1838, working as a drawing teacher and a royal inspector of buildings, and made some fine watercolours of contemporary views, as well as ideal reconstructions of the city’s ancient glory.
