Edwin Lord Weeks - North Africa
I would like to add some more images by maestro Weeks
this time from North Africa and Western Asia - Persia- I used to like those old Hollywood movies about the tales of the Arabian[Persian and /or Indian] Nights and even the ones about the French Foreign Legion.
back to the subject - in the US there are many, many Orientalist paintings within the vast warehouses of many a museum. But we do not cherish them too much nowadays ..
So let us explore some more the Bostonian's brush work - in addition, you can even read about this travels an adventures in a book he wrote and illustrated himself.
