The British artist John Frederick Lewis painted impressive colored paintings with everyday impressions from the Mediterranean and the Far East. He was born in 1804 in the metropolis of London. As the son of a copper engraver and landscape painter, as a child he was able to look over his father's shoulder while making elaborate pictures. In addition, he trained his talent with the neighbor boy and later animal painter Edwin Landseer . In many later works, therefore, animals occurred, for. In "The Lioness" (1824), "Twelve Domesticated Animals" (1826), or "Spanish Couple Riding a Mule" (1832).

John Frederick Lewis showed himself from 1827 decided to travel and visited several European countries, while he painted with watercolors. From 1832 he was thirsty after getting to know other cultures in Spain, Morocco, Greece and then Constantinople. When he finally settled in Cairo for ten years in 1841, he had made him an important Orientalist painter. He lived in the turbulent city of a traditional but elegant house, which served several times in his works as a background landscape. The personal lifestyle he adapted to the oriental culture. From the friend and satirist William Makepeace Thackeray, who visited him, he was described as sedate, dreamy and as cigarette smoking villagers. After his return from Egypt Lewis lived in 1854 in the British Walton -on-Thames, where he died in 1876. His enthusiasm for oriental life remained very much alive until recently, and he turned many of his drawings made in Cairo into color paintings. One of his most important pictures was exhibited in London and praised by critics. It is "The Hareem" (1850) and was made by Lewis in the last two years of his life under the Egyptian sun. © Meisterdrucke
