A 19th CENTURY ORIENTALIST OIL ON CANVAS PAINTING IN THE MANNER OF FELIX ZIEM (1821-1911).
The painting represents a view of Venice depicting scenes of daily life taking place around the river Po with the Doge Palace in the back ground.
The whole is set within its original richly carved gilt wood frame with beautiful scrolled foliate design and palmette carvings at the corners.
The formation in 1893 of the French Orientalist Painters Society marks the apogee of this style of paintings.
We tend to identify two broad types of Orientalist artists: the realists who carefully painted what they observed and those who imagined Orientalist scenes without ever leaving the studio.
