Find a wide range of beautiful wall art by famous artists in our category Orientalism

The Orient (from Latin oriens – where the sun rises), often called as the East in traditional languages is the counterpart for the Occident or the West, that is the European world. The word Orient is used rarely in a political or geographical context but it is rather used in cultural terms. The world of the Orient has always inspired many artists belonging to different epochs e.g. Eugène Ferdinand Victor Delacroix, Carl Spitzweg, Francesco Hayez, Théodore Chassériau and it has been the subject of several European paintings. The artistic representations are not just of documentary value with respect to the "picture" of the Orient; they also represent individual wishes, desires and prejudices about the East.
