I'm in love with the sources I found for this collage, which includes an 1837 nude study for a figure of Fame, from the Hémicycle des Beaux-Arts by Paul Delaroche, and a gorgeous 1883 orientalist painting of an Amazigh bride in Tangiers by Catalan artist Josep Tapiró Baró.
19th-century orientalism has a really complicated place in art history, being derived from a pervasive (and still ongoing) Western tradition of prejudiced outsider-interpretations of the “Eastern” world, and shaped by harmful cultural attitudes of European imperialism. While I love some of the aesthetics of the movement, I think it's important to understand that much of its art functions as a facade for the far-reaching exploitation of a multitude of diverse peoples and cultures. While I was researching the Amazigh woman featured here, although she herself remains sadly anonymous, I found some fascinating history by Nuunja Kahina about the Imazighen, a word which means “free people” in the indigenous Tamazight language. You can check it out here: bit.ly/the-imazighen. ⠀
