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

01 Orientalist Painting, with footnotes, #58

Circle of August Theodor Schoefft (Hungarian, 1809-1888)
Crossing the Tigris
oil on canvas laid down on board
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
