😱SO unusual #1920s silk kimono w Chinese figural appliqué! ✨

Within her series "Bullets Revisited," #LallaEssaydi’s models are sometimes draped in textiles encrusted with polished bullet casings that evoke violence.
She covered this figure with a metal cape and turned her body away from the viewer, reflecting her observation that covering or veiling offers a form of privacy.
@lallaessaydi's art explores the contested borders between public & private space for Arab women, a matter foregrounded in historic #Orientalist art that portrayed harems & other private spaces specifically for consumption by a Western audience. #NMWARevival

Heat and Dust: Crossing the desert, 19th-century style, as seen in Eugène Giradet’s luminous, cinematic painting of the nomadic life. As much a celebration of the stoicism and dignity of the self-sufficient Berber tribesmen and women, as it is of the Saharan light, ‘A Desert Caravan’ is on view in our #London galleries this weekend ahead of Tuesday’s #Orientalist Sale.

Amazing orientalist art at the Orsay !

"Monitor" 24x36" Thanks to @ruprecht_v_kaufmann for the suggestion of the monitor glow, not just the 19th century light. I wanted a reference to the Orientalists, but a modern subversion. Gerome is in the background. #contemporaryrealism #orientalist #gerome #portrait
