    the album of views (=species, looks)

    Hello.

    The lithography was taken from the album of views (=species, looks) of the Dormition cenobitic monastery.

    It is a translation and it sounds literally to me.

    Wouldn't it be better to say "from the Dormition cenobitic monastery's album"?

    Thank you.

    No. The original is better, assuming the parenthetical remark is not part of it.
