01 Painting by Orientalist Artists, with footnotes, #59

Eugène Fromentin, French, 1820 - 1876
WINDSTORM ON THE ESPARTO PLAINS OF THE SAHARA
Oil on canvas
117 by 163cm., 46 by 64in.
Private collection

Esparto, halfah grass, or esparto grass, is a fiber produced from two species of perennial grasses of north Africa and southern Europe. It is used for crafts, such as cords, basketry, and espadrilles. Stipa tenacissima and Lygeum spartum are the species used to produce esparto. More on Esparto

Eugène Fromentin (October 24, 1820 – August 27, 1876) was a French painter and writer, now better remembered for his writings. He was born in La Rochelle. After leaving school he studied for some years under Louis Cabat, the landscape painter. Fromentin was one of the earliest pictorial interpreters of Algeria, having been able, while quite young, to visit the land and people that suggested the subjects of most of his works, and to store his memory as well as his portfolio with the picturesque and characteristic details of North African life. In 1849, he was awarded a medal of the second class.

In 1852, he paid a second visit to Algeria, accompanying an archaeological mission, and then completed that minute study of the scenery of the country and of the habits of its people which enabled him to give to his after-work the realistic accuracy that comes from intimate knowledge. More on Eugène Fromentin

Crossing the Tigris

59 x 78.7cm (23 1/4 x 31in).
Private collection

The Tigris is the eastern of the two great rivers that define Mesopotamia, the other being the Euphrates. The river flows south from the mountains of southeastern Turkey through Iraq and empties into the Persian Gulf.

August Theodor Schoefft (Hungarian, 1809-1888) was the son of a local portrait painter August Theodor Schoefft, born to German parents who had migrated to Hungary. After formal art training in Vienna, Schoefft set out on a great adventure to travel exotic lands and paint foreign scenes while supporting himself on painting commissions as a professional artist. He managed to secure several prestigious portraits. Schoefft eventually made his way to India via Turkey, arriving at Bombay in 1838. Once in India he advertised his skills as an artist in local newspapers which led to a number of profitable commissions. As word of Schoefft's skills as an artist spread he spent the next two years travelling extensively and working on commissioned painting for various clients. Eventually Schoefft reached the capital of the Sikh Kingdom, Lahore in November 1841 during the reign of Maharaja Sher Singh. More on August Theodor Schoefft

01 Orientalist Painting, with footnotes, #55

Nathaniel Sichel
Portrait of an Egyptian Woman
Oil on canvas
42 x 28 in
Private collection

Nathaniel Sichel's artistic career began at the Royal Academy of Art in Munich, where he was trained in the academic tradition by Julius Schrader. He continued his studies in Paris at the École des Beaux arts where he won the prestigious Prix de Rome in 1864 with a painting entitled Joseph explains the dreams of the Pharaoh. This work solidified his reputation as a painter of Orientalist and historical subjects. Among these, he is mostly known for his depictions of Oriental beauties, dressed in opulent costumes and adorned with gold coins and jewelry.

The artist composed pictures of female figures in a Moorish setting, dressed in sensuous and dramatic attire. The artist's depiction of the Eastern world is skillfully executed with varied patterns in the architecture, décor, carpets, and textiles, emphasized by his superior draftsmanship and adept brushwork. More on Nathaniel Sichel

01 Orientalist Painting, with footnotes, #55

Ethel Carrick, (1872 - 1952)
A Market in Kairouan, (Circa 1911)
Oil on canvas
38 x 46 cm
Private collection

Kairouan (also spelled Kairwan), is the capital of the Kairouan Governorate in Tunisia. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city was founded by the Umayyads around 670. In the period of Caliph Mu'awiya (reigned 661–680), it became an important centre for Sunni Islamic scholarship and Quranic learning, and thus attracting a large number of Muslims from various parts of the world, next only to Mecca and Medina. The holy Mosque of Uqba is situated in the city. More on Kairouan

Ethel Carrick (February 7, 1872 – June 17, 1952), also known by her married name of Ethel Carrick Fox, was an English-born Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painter. Much of her career was spent in France and in Australia, where she was associated with the movement known as the Heidelberg School.

Mainly a painter, Carrick is known for her flower paintings, landscapes and scenes of outdoor urban life in parks and on beaches. Some of these draw on her international travels, such as her paintings of outdoor markets in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Carrick began as an Impressionist plein air painter but fairly quickly moved to a more Post-Impressionist style featuring blockier compositions and sharper color contrasts. Some of the works produced around 1911-12 are distinctly Fauvist. Her canvases of urban life tend to be dense with human activity and feature patches of vibrant color. More on Ethel Carrick
