The Orientalists. Enchantment and discoveries.

The Orientalists

Here is this amazing exhibition not to be missed in Rome, in the beautiful Chiostro del Bramante, a jewel of Renaissance architecture.

A great selection of about eighty paintings that narrate the Orient’s influences in the nineteenth century Italian art.

By the echoes of Napoleon’s expedition to Egypt, the wish to discover more about culture, history and atmosphere of distant lands…

A breath of the Orient, of exoticism and eroticism that has plagued the Italian painting from Venice to Naples, offering veiled odalisques and mystical scenery.
