The Lure of the East

I went to a museum opening here in Istanbul last night of a show called The Lure of the East: British Orientalist Painting. It was a gorgeous show, and I especially loved it since I have a minor obsession with orientalists and their dress-up ways, but I was really surprised to find the following painting, it’s called Edfou, Upper Egypt, and was painted by John Fredrick Lewis in 1860, and it’s half the header of my blog.
