This is the original Pen & Ink Wash by Cecil Doughty.

A striking painting by Cecil Doughty depicting Saxons ransacking a roman villa. The treasure hunters have smashed through a beautiful mosaic floor in order to hoist out the trunk that was concealed within, after having brutally murdered the keeper of the house who lies face down on the veranda.

Subtly painted and full of intricate detail, Doughty captures a crude human moment, as the brutes drink the dead man's wine and callously jest about stealing the precious goods.
