Algérie - Peintre Américain, John Lewis Shonborn ( 1852–1931), Huile sur toile, Titre: Marchand d'oranges
A souk. Most likely the place is Cairo. Artist is Edwin L. Weeks. The common label it carries is "Moorish Bazar." But there's no such thing as "Moor" or "Mooristan" or "Moorish" in Arabic. This term is a concoction by Western orientalist artists derived from "Mauri" which was the name of a specific & small Berber community in North Africa. From that, some foolish orientalists began addressing all Muslims as "Moors." Their lack of education was appalling.
Sergio Raposo Fernández work doesn't have many straight lines - buildings are all crooked and everything is curved. I really like the fantasy-atmosphere this generates in his work. (You may recognise some of his work as I've featured it here before). Related
