John Frederick Lewis: Life in the Harem, Cairo

    Newer Older

    Watercolor and body color. 1858.

    Orientalist art has always fascinated me, and it was these sort of harem type scenes that I started collecting when I first began searching for internet art.

      i have been looking at john fredrick lewis pictures for some years and being a watercolour painter myself alwys love to find a new picture by him.
      due to his meticulouse technique, he is a wonderful artist to study.Manchester Art Gallery have an original oil painting by him.

      I was surprised it was watercolor when I first saw it - at the time I didn't think watercolor art could look so good. Glad you found!
