Edward Hopper is brilliant imho.


Jean-Léon Gérôme was an absolute orientalist, no questions asked. But in regards to this painting in particular, what's so orientalist about it?


how does one become an orientalist? asking for a friend


In essence, 'orientalism' is the view that holds middle eastern, Asian and north African cultures and societies as "exotic" when compared to the 'more refined' and 'developed' to their European counterparts

From wikipedia:
>Since the publication of Edward Said's Orientalism in 1978, much academic discourse has begun to use the term "Orientalism" to refer to a general patronizing Western attitude towards Middle Eastern, Asian, and North African societies. In Said's analysis, the West essentializes these societies as static and undeveloped—thereby fabricating a view of Oriental culture that can be studied, depicted, and reproduced in the service of imperial power. Implicit in this fabrication, writes Said, is the idea that Western society is developed, rational, flexible, and superior.[2]

I wonder if this poster's meaning was clearer back in the 20's.


I mean, it's annotated:
>With a red wedge, beat the Whites!
Can't get more obvious than spelling it out
