4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful little book, 15 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Orientalists: The Orientalists - Painter-Travellers: 1 (PocheCouleur) (Paperback)
I was surprised to see this book was so small but it's still a great book, well made and with colour reproductions throughout. The text is broken up into small chapters of 2-6 pages each which focus on individual artists and showing a small selection of their work. for most it's just a couple of pictures but for the better known artists it'll be a few more.

It's good to find such a nice, accessible and well produced book on the subject. If you're looking for an introduction to the Orientalist artists, and want to see what their work is like, then it really is one of the best books around. People who are already well read on the subject, or have other books on Orientalist art and artists, will probably not find anything new here and will, in all likelihood, have books which show the pictures in a larger format.

Having said that; I fall into that description myself and I still found it an enjoyable and informative book with details on artists I knew little about.

If this is a subject you're only just starting to learn about, or have studied only a short while, then this book is almost indispensable and, if you can forgive the small size of the book, belongs in any Orientalist collectors library.
