The Orient and the mystical images it evokes have always been a special source of inspiration in the history of European painting. From the Venetian portrayal of the Renaissance and the first examples of the Turkish Fashion to the heyday of the 19th century and the Tunis paintings by August Macke and Paul Klee, this volume with over 300 full-colour illustrations traces the development of the oriental motif in painting. The Orient in Western Art presents the emergence and development of an artistic motif accompanied by explanations of social and cultural history.
