The view of the Orient from the West is often as if through a keyhole. In 19th and 20th centuray Orientalist art the main subject is the Odalisque, the exotic woman covered with transparent veils, harem trousers or even totally nude reclining on heavy carpets or the harem's baths.

The Orient became an epithet for desires and fantasies, beginning with the Napoleonic Egyptian campain. Scientists followed in their wake, exploring and measuring the country on the Nile.

Our selection is not reduced to the depiction of women but covers a wide range of images showing caravans, deserts, cities, bazaars and coffee houses in their colourful glory.
