Frederic A. Bridgeman
Tomb of the Kings, Thebes, Egypt - watercolour landscape by F. A. Bridgeman

1874

About

Dimensions are 3.7 x 5.9 in (9.5 x 15 cm) unframed, (10 3/4 x 5 7/8 in; 27.5 x 35 cm framed). This watercolour by America's best known Orientalist painter is inscribed and dated l.l.: 'Tombs of the Kings Thebes/15 Jan 1874' and stamped with atelier stamp, inscribed and dated 'NICE 1954'. This watercolour was drawn during Bridgeman's visit to Egypt in 1873-1874, which inspired the pictures of the East that forged his success and won him critical acclaim. His Paris Salon exhibition in 1877, 'The Funeral Procession of a Mummy on the Nile', bought by James Gordon Bennett, earned him the Cross of the Legion d’Honneur. He regularly exhibited during his lifetime at the Paris Salon, the Royal Academy, London and in the USA.
