Greene died at the age of 24 leaving behind little in the way of written records that might illuminate either his methodology or his intentions as it related to the subject matter he chose to represent. Unmistakable is the singularly modern element to the visual choices he made particularly in regards to the spareness of his striking landscapes which form a large part of his later work in Algeria. This particular print of the Roman constructed Aqueduct of Cherchell is a striking example of Greene's ability to fuse together the dramatic potential of the natural world with the feats of human architectural ingenuity.
