The Lure Of The East - British Orientalist Painting at Tate Britain

I squeezed in a trip to Tate Britain earlier this week to see this exhibition before it closes at the end of the month. It is a selection of paintings from British artists who travelled around the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East throughout the nineteenth century capturing the landscapes, religious places and local traditions of the area.

I particularly enjoyed the beautiful landscapes in there, which captured the hazy beauty of the land really well.
