According to the Royal Museums Greenwich, which holds a copy of the print, it was made by Joseph (Giovanni) Schranz (1803-53), Maltese topographical artist. Schranz's father Anton (1767-1839) was a German artist who migrated to Minorca (where he married) and subsequently to Malta. Joseph and his brother Antonio (1801- after 1865) operated a lithographic establishment as the Schranz Brothers.
