The Orientalist Sale brings together paintings representing the landscapes, people and cultures of North Africa, Egypt, the Levant, Arabia and the Ottoman world during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

In response to the current strength of this market as evidenced by our most recent Orientalist Sale in April of this year, we are introducing a further sale dedicated to the category this October, to coincide with our Arts of the Islamic World sale. Already consigned are works by Jean-Léon Gérôme, Rudolf Ernst, and Frederick Arthur Bridgman.

For a free valuation of your paintings please contact one of our specialists below. We will be accepting consignments for the Orientalist Sale until mid-September.
