Inspired By The East: How The Islamic World Influenced Western ArtCovering five centuries of artistic interaction, Inspired by the east: how the Islamic world influenced western art explores how western artists have long been inspired by the Islamic world. The diverse selection of objects includes ceramics, photography, glass, jewellery and clothing and finishes with four contemporary reactions to the imagery of Orientalism by Middle Eastern and North African female artists. Discover how the representation of the east in western arts, known as Orientalism, reached its height during the 19th century but can trace its origins back much further, to the 1500s. See important works by Eugene Delacroix, John Frederick Lewis and Frederick Arthur Bridgman, as well as significant but less familiar pieces like Edmund Dulac's original illustrations for a 1907 edition of the Arabian Nights.
