"Combing hair" by Osman Hamdi Bey. Painted by the Turkish artist in about 1900. Osman Hamdi was unusual as a native of the Ottoman Empire who had trained with western orientalist painters like Gerome. His images are a lot more conservative than the French artists and are similar to J.F. Lewis's work from half a century before.

The janissaries are the Ottoman Empire's soldiers, they are very disciplined! Making the Ottoman army very powerful, they are trained specifically for battles! /tcc/

John Frederick Lewis (1804-1876), "A Favorite of the Harem." I love the color and fabric contrasts of this one. By period standards, this and many other Orientalist paintings of women are rather racy images--note the spread legs here, unthinkable in the painter's own British society.
