John Frederick Lewis (1805-1876)

John Frederick Lewis was an British Orientalist painter specialized in Oriental and Mediterranean scenes. Lewis travelled in Spain and Morocco between 1832-1834.
His very careful and loving representation of Islamic architecture, furnishings, screens, and costumes set new standards of realism, which influenced other artists, including the leading French** Orientalist painter Jean-Léon Gérôme** in his later works.
