The Enduring Middle EastPresented by Beyond Borders
Mon 18 - Sat 23 June 2012, 10am to 5pm (closes 4pm on final day)
Following in the footsteps of Edinburgh-born Orientalist painter David Roberts, Scottish artist Joseph Maxwell Stuart travelled across the Middle East in 2010, making detailed sketches of its timeless cultural sites including Petra, Giza and Wadi Rum. Maxwell Stuart’s oil and watercolour paintings, capture the spirit and beauty of these sites and speak of the enduring appeal of the culture and landscape of the Arab world, which continues to fascinate artists and writers through the ages, across the globe.
