A gouache on paper of a middle eastern street scene; a good example of the Orientalist style, which sought to present the exotic and fabled culture of the middle east, or Orient.  Common subjects included markets and Islamic architecture.  In this painting, white-robed figures carrying colorful goods pass through an arch on a street.  Presented in a very good giltwood frame and French style mat. Likely dating from the first quarter of the 20th century.


Condition: Very good to excellent, with minor wear to the frame.

Dimensions: 13.75" wide x 17" high, overall
