Orientalism and other Exotica

A collection of paintings I have chanced upon while wandering Tumblr. Many of these are big images worth clicking on. Above, John Singer Sargent, Cashmere, 1908, and detail.

Benjamin Constant, The Favorite of the Emir, 1879.

Theodore Rallis, Veiled Woman, 1880, detail.

Alfred Choubrac, Scheherazade and the Sultan.

José Benlliure Gil, Carnival in Rome, 1881

Arthur Hacker, By the Waters of Babylon, 1888
