18 artists found
In the motifs of "Orientalism" one thinks suddenly of great adventures in front of exotic backdrops, monumental pyramids, sensual romance and free-hare harem ladies. Representations of a mysterious, seductive and at the same time decadent, "strange" world.

The oriental pictures are from the middle of the 19th century to the late 1880s. The "Orientalism" also includes other works in picture and text from the early years of the 20th century. Middle- and Far-Eastern motifs have influenced architecture, music and literature in addition to painting and applied arts. Often the artists were inspired by travels to the Orient and their experiences there. Or imported goods, such as porcelain from China.

The term "Orientalism" is still relatively young. In 1978 he was coined by the American literary critic Edward Said. The interpretation of orientalistic works is not without controversy. One sees a chauvinistic view of Europe in the Arab world and the Middle East. Western power fantasies in the shadow of colonial territorial claims. For others, oriental images are simply a romantic view of the Orient. An unknown and fascinating world in which one wants to sink into a swarm.

Well-known representatives of "Orientalism" are the French painters Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Eugène Delacroix. On the German side, among others Gustav Bauerfeind, Eugen Bracht or Georg Macco. As well as the Austrian Leopold Carl Müller.
