One of the most famous American painters of his time was the adventurer and ethnographer Edwin Lord Weeks.

Iridescent textures, the skilful play with light and an astonishing architectural sense characterize his style, which is generally described as Orientalism. Weeks composed colourful scenes that reflect his travel impressions.

From the 1870s to the 1890s, the Boston-born scion of wealthy spice and tea merchants traveled throughout Spain, Syria, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, Persia and India.
A recurring theme of his pictures is the oriental market place with its craftsmen, the colourful life in the streets, elaborately decorated camels and the local architecture.

Typical, well-known works are "Muttra", "The old blue-tiled mosque outside Delhi, India", but also the "Carpet Bazaar" from 1878, where the reference to the craftsmanship of Moroccan weavers in the motif of the "Carpet Bazaar" is today seen as a counterpoint to the emerging industrialization and mechanization of textile production in Europe. Modern art history reads Weeks' large-format paintings as multi-layered commentaries on the contemporary geopolitical transformation of Asia.
Weeks studied with Jean Leon Gerome in Paris and from there he visited India several times early on. Gérôme taught him a "photographic" technique and aroused his interest in the Spanish Orientalists. Weeks inspired their glittering, strong colours. He moved his studio from America to Paris, because it was easier for him to travel to India from there.

He called himself a colorist. "It is bright, clear sunlight that I wish to depict," Edwin Lord Weeks summed up his artistic intentions.
Even though he broke away from the academic tradition as an artist, Weeks remained in lifelong contact with the Parisian École des Beaux-Arts and was a member of the Munich Secession. © Meisterdrucke
