Turbans in the Orientalism of Henri Matisse (French artist, 1869–1954)



1907 Henri Matisse (French artist, 1869–1954) Red Madras Headdress

Although women had been depicted with turbans for centuries, these turbans were part of the Oriental craze in 19-20C art. Orientalism is a term used by art, literary, & cultural studies scholars for the depiction of aspects of Middle Eastern & Eastern cultures by writers & artists from Western cultures. Orientalist painting, depicting mostly "the Middle East" was one of the many areas of 19C art.

George Beare (English artist fl 1743-1749) Flower seller



William Powell Frith (English Painter, 1819-1909).The Flower Seller 1871

 In the crowded industrial cities of the 19th-century, where flowers & gardens were a luxury, town folks often depended on local flower sellers at open-air markets & on street corners. Generally, I am not a fan of sentimental genre paintings as art, but they often contain period details not available from other historical sources.
