Propylaea on the Acropolis. Athens, Greece
Photographer: William James Stillman
Photograph date: 1869
Building date: 437 B.C.-432 B.C.
Notes: William James Stillman was an American artist, art critic,
journalist, diplomat and photographer. His best known photographs
are views of the Acropolis he produced in 1869, of which this image
is an excellent example. He later published the views, including
a variant of this one in 1870. A. D. White knew Stillman and sought
his advice in purchasing photographs during his 1889 visit to Athens.
