The Harem, John Frederick Lewis

Life in the Harem- Mamluk- Ottoman Cairo Painted by the Orientalist artist John Fredrick Lewis… in the 19th century during the Mamluk period johnfredricklewis

John Frederick Lewis (1804-1876), "A Favorite of the Harem." I love the color and fabric contrasts of this one. By period standards, this and many other Orientalist paintings of women are rather racy images--note the spread legs here, unthinkable in the painter's own British society.

Harem (1915-17) by Dutch Painter Kees van Dongen (1877 - 1968)

Pablo Picasso. The Harem. 1906. Rose Period. Painted while in Gósol, in Catalonia.

In The Harem Painting - In The Harem Fine Art Print

Harem beauty painting by Frederic Louis Leve. Harems were something of a theme for artists in the later half of the 19th century, even if they had never been to the Islamic world. Many of the paintings are derived from the artists' imaginations, not real life.
