Egypt, Old Cairo Paintings

In the process of adding new links to the various pages on this site, happily there was this:

‘Egypt, Old Cairo Paintings’.

Try out the link. There are many good high quality photographs of orientalist paintings from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, with some information about the painters…

Have always enjoyed the updates that appear from this site on Spacebook, or Facebook as they prefer to be called.

The latest painting on Spacebook is this:


Oriental street scene & gate of Cairo , 1913
By Carl Wuttke – German, 1849 – 1927
Oil on canvas , 71.80 cm X 54.00 cm

A chance, perhaps, to dream about an Egypt that never really was… or maybe only in the mind of the foreign visitors…

Why not try and enjoy…

Glazed Composition Pectoral c.1250 BC New Kingdom/Reign of Ramesses II Glazed composition pectoral: in the form of a pylon, or temple gateway. It depicts the god Anubis as a jackal, with a winged ‘wedjat’, or sacred eye, in the upper left-hand corner. The colour blue connotes resurrection, as often remarked, and the colour yellow alludes to the sun, itself a powerful symbol of resurrection. (Source: The British Museum)
