  Frederick Catherwood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Frederick Catherwood (February 27, 1799 - September 20, 1854) was an English artist and architect, best remembered for his explorations of ruins of the Maya civilization.
Catherwood made visits to Greece, Turkey, Egypt, and Palestine and with Joseph Bonomi the Younger made drawings and watercolors of the ancient remains there.
A large number of his original drawings and paintings were destroyed when the building where he was exhibiting them in New York City caught fire, but a number survive in museums and private collections, often showing more detail than the published engravings.

 Stephens and Catherwood | Planeta
Artist Catherwood was determined to make use of the Daguerreotype camera and as no one in their group knew how to use it, the men set up a quick portrait taking business in their Merida hotel before heading into the field.
Stephens described Catherwood as working in spite of his affliction, standing on top of crudely made scaffolding or standing in mud, veiled with a net and wearing clumsy gloves to protect his hands from mosquitoes.
At first, Catherwood had great difficulty in depicting the designs of the Maya monuments (as stated in his work Views of Ancient Monuments in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan in 1844), due to their complexity and because they were so different from anything he had previously seen.

 Views of Ancient Monuments | Frederick Catherwood and the Mayan Ruins
Catherwood's "Views" was the first significant depiction of Mayan ruins in Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula.
While Stephens lively account, "Incidents of Travel in Yucatan," remains a classic of travel writing, it is Catherwood's illustrations, remarkable for their accuracy (some have been instrumental in the reconstruction of buildings that had subsequently fallen), and striking in their sense of mystery and beauty that have captured the imagination of generations.
The awe and excitement of his journey with Stephens is palpable in each illustration, where the visual impact transcends the documentary purpose, becoming a unique blend of science and art; both a valuable historical document and an enduring evocation of early exploration and discovery only possible in the period before photo documentation became common place.

Frederick Catherwood (l799-l854) was an Englishman who had been trained as an architect but whose real talent lay in his ability to render views of ancient monuments with great accuracy and insight.

Catherwood rendered these sculptures and buildings -so different from anything he had seen before- with such skill and openmindedness that his drawings are still useful today.

 'Coincidence of Travel in Yucatan' - Mayan Ruins in Yucatan, Mexico; by Randy R. Johnson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Catherwood, upon first seeing great works of Mayan art and architecture, immediately recognized that they had no relation to any other Old World cultures, and it was he who first dismissed the previously-held notion that the ruins of ancient American civilizations were the work of Egyptians, Nabateans, or the Lost Tribe of Israel.
Catherwood's most famous and unique drawings of the Maya world is of the colossal wooden ladder leading down into the Cenote of Bolenchen, with a dozen Indians carrying water jugs up and down.
Catherwood includes drawings of full length sculptured bas-reliefs (Plate X, vol II), which include some Mayan glyphs, but while they "resemble those at Palenque in general character and detail of ornament, they are greatly inferior in design and execution." Still, full bas-reliefs in Post Classic Yucatan would be quite a good find.

 Julia Herzberg, 'Leandro Katz: Two Projects/A Decade' essay
The Catherwood Project (1985-93) is a photographic reconstruction of the visual documentation of the Maya monuments made famous by the artist Frederick Catherwood in the mid-nineteenth century.
In photographing the monuments that Catherwood had drawn, Katz attempted to "enter into the vision of Catherwood by looking for his precise point of view that he had used." Katz developed five different approaches in this process of adapting the earlier artist's point of view.
In Kabah Interior [after Catherwood] of 1993, the challenge was to capture a sliver of light that comes into the chamber for some fifteen minutes each day and also to illuminate artificially the hand-held book with the engraving.
