The Lure of the East
A major retrospective of British Orientalist Painting 

previous pagenext page

'Lure of the East' was an exhibition held at Tate Britain, exploring the responses of British artists to the cultures and landscapes of the Near and Middle East between 1780 and 1930. Focusing on five major themes – portraits, genre, religious and domestic subjects and landscape – the exhibition offered a broad perspective of the imaginary 'Orient' depicted by these artists.

Invited to design both the exhibition and the catalogue, we were able to make them correlate through the use of colour: the chosen palette was derived from the paintings and used in both the chapter openings and on the walls of each room.
