This beautifully illustrated oversized publication presents an array of lush visions created by 19th-century European artists who specialized in Near Eastern and North African subjects. Featuring painters such as Charles Bargue and sculptors such as Antoine-Louis Barye, a scholarly essay documents significant works selected from a wide range of international institutions. Examples include Delacroix's watercolours from his 1832 trip to Morocco, and the magnificent silvered bronze and jasper sculpture The Algerian by Charles Cordier. Richly coloured and representing varying degrees of fantastic, realist and naturalist approaches to the subject, these works of art are also telling visual documents of 19th-century Western cultural and political attitudes toward the Near East.
