Orientalist Art

With the focus of the World's attention on the Middle East there is a growing interest and fascination with the works of the 19th and 20th Century Orientalists who captured a totally different aspect and view of the Middle East as we know it today. Whether this was fantasy or fact will remain the subject of debate but it cannot be denied that their works are colourful, sensual, atmospheric, beautiful, erotic and enjoyable. The paintings take us back to Colonial times which had offered the opportunity for artists from the West to travel to the Near and Middle East and respond to the climatic effects on their mediums and on their own view of this world. The results produced an image of a peaceful and exotic world that cannot be recognised today and which has been captured for posterity in these wonderful works.
