120 Great Orientalist Paintings [With CDROM] (Dover Electronic Clip Art) (Paperback)
These evocative portraits and landscapes recapture the haunting beauty of the Middle East and North Africa. A rage for Eastern exoticism swept the European art world of the 19th century. These entrancing images are among the results, depicting the harems, marketplaces, and mosques of Egypt, Turkey, Persia, Algeria, Morocco, and other regions. Featured artists include Eugene Delacroix, Jean-Leon Gerome, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and scores of other masters.
