| I hope that you have enjoyed this tour of Orientalist art. When I first saw 'Berber Woman' by Emile Vernet-Lecomte I was extremely moved by it. To borrow from J.R.R. Tolkien, "I felt that I had stepped through a high window into a world that no longer existed." The more I studied this art the more impressed and enmeshed I became. For several years I have wanted to put something on the internet to share this incredible movement with the world.
There are a number of books on this subject and I hope that people will buy them and in doing so support this art and help to re-elevate it to the place that it belongs in history.
