Intimate outsiders : the harem in Ottoman and Orientalist art and travel literature by Mary Roberts( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 571 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 )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Until now, Orientalist art - exemplified by paintings of harems, slave markets, or bazaars - has predominantly been understood to reflect Western interpretations and to perpetuate reductive, often demeaning stereotypes of the exotic East. Orientalism's Interlocutors contests the idea that Orientalist art simply expresses the politics of Western domination and argues instead that it was often produced through cross-cultural interactions. Focusing on paintings and other representations of North African and Ottoman cultures, by both local artists and westerners, the contributors contend that the stylistic similarities between indigenous and Western Orientalist art mask profound interpretive differences, which, on examination, can reveal a visual language of resistance to colonization. The essays also demonstrate how marginalized voices and viewpoints - especially women's - within Western Orientalism decentered and destabilized colonial authority
