Description:
Robert Gavin, RSA (British, 1827-1883)

A Shiek [sic] of Araby
signed 'ROBERT GAVIN A.R.S.A.' and inscribed with title (verso)
oil on canvas
61 x 51cm (24 x 20 1/16in).

Footnotes

Captivated by the exoticism and mystery of North Africa and the Middle East, many European artists during the mid-late 19th century travelled to North Africa and the Middle East for artistic inspiration. The Orientalist genre developed from Romanticism, sharing a concern for human emotions, the human form and a fascination for the perceived 'uncivilised' cultures of the Orient.

Born in Leith, Scotland, Robert Gavin was one such artist, spending a number of years in Morocco observing and painting Moorish life, primarily portraits. The present lot reflects the curiosity of the European Orientalists, showing particular interest in the colours and textures of the sitter's exotic costume. Although there no proof, it is possible that this is a self-portrait of the artist; Orientalist artists, such as John Frederick Lewis (1805-1876), often painted themselves in Oriental costume.
