Art discovery: Edwin Lord Weeks

Art discovery: Edwin Lord Weeks

I thought I would bring this painter to your attention: Edwin Lord Weeks. He won’t be an Artist of the Month, but he still has some cool paintings. They are mostly travel paintings of foreign people in exotic foreign lands, including South America, Egypt, Persia, Morocco, and India. These paintings are great references for historians and lovers of architecture.
