designer loves art...72...Carl Nebel

there aren't many images of life in Mexico in the 1830's....
this is Carl Nebel
(both of them in Spanish i couldn't find one in English unfortunately)
architect and draftsman born in Germany, he lived in Mexico for about 5 years in the 19th century.
he showed his art work in Paris in 1836. giving that part of the world a glimpse of how life was lived in Mexico back then.
his work is colorful, and his drawings of cities do truly show how things where back then.
it's very emotional to me at least to see how life was back then.
