Intimate outsiders : the harem in Ottoman and Orientalist art and travel literature by Mary Roberts( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Intimate Outsiders, the art historian Mary Roberts brings to light a body of harem imagery that was created through a dynamic process of cultural exchange. Roberts focuses on images produced by nineteenth-century European artists and writers who were granted access to harems in the urban centres of Istanbul and Cairo. Invited guests, these Europeans were "intimate outsiders" within the women's quarters of elite Ottoman households. At the same time, elite Ottoman women were offered intimate access to European culture through their contact with these foreign travellers. Roberts draws on a range of sources including paintings, photographs, and travelogues discovered in archives in Britain, Turkey, Egypt, and Denmark
Orientalism's interlocutors : painting, architecture, photography by Jill Beaulieu( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking at the political significance of cross-cultural encounters refracted through the visual languages of Orientalism, the contributors engage with pressing recent debates about indigenous agency, postcolonial identity, and gendered subjectivities. The very range of artists, styles, and forms discussed in this collection broadens contemporary understandings of Orientalist art. Among the artists considered are the Algerian painters Azouaou Mammeri and Mohammed Racim; Turkish painter Osman Hamdi; British landscape painter Barbara Bodichon; and the French painter Henri Regnault. From the liminal "Third Space" created by mosques in postcolonial Britain to the ways nineteenth-century harem women negotiated their portraits by British artists, the essays in this collection force a rethinking of the Orientalist canon."--GoogleBooks

Istanbul exchanges : Ottomans, orientalists, and nineteenth-century visual culture by Mary Roberts( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A vibrant artistic milieu emerged in the late-nineteenth century Istanbul that was extremely heterogeneous, including Ottoman, Ottoman-Armenian, French, Italian, British, Polish and Ottoman-Greek artists. Roberts analyzes the ways artistic output intersected with the broader political agenda of a modernizing Ottoman state. She draws on extensive original research, bringing together sources in Turkey, England, France, Italy, Armenia, Poland and Denmark. Five chapters each address a particular issue related to transcultural exchange across the east-west divide that is focused on a particular case study of art, artistic patronage, and art exhibitions in nineteenth-century Istanbul"--Provided by publisher

Zoom Out : The Making and Unmaking of the "Orient" through Photography symposium( Recording )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The materials comprise audio recordings and ephemera from "Zoom Out : The Making and Unmaking of the 'Orient' through Photography." The symposium examines how the Middle East and North Africa were represented through photography by Europeans and non-Europeans during the second half of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Scholarly presentations and moderated discussions explore the relationship between Orientalist photography and other artistic media; the impact of traveling photographers on tourism and commercial photography; the connection between resident photographers and the rise of official photography (local and nationalistic); and the ways in which both local and foreign artists, as well as patrons and collectors, contributed to the making--and unmaking--of the "Orient."
