More Orientalist Action

A while back I mentioned seeing the exhibition of Orientalist art in the Tate Britain in that London. Now the BBC reports the exhibition has travelled to Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, where the locals can see how crazy Victorians imagined their lives. Interestingly, the BBC also reports that vintage Orientalist art is carrying ever increasing prices in the art markets of the world - you can never really go too wrong with eroticised pictures of dusky native ladies.
