Fabio Fabbi
Wedding Procession in Cairo

Late 19th Century

About

This painting presents a procession through the bustling streets of Cairo. The cause for celebration is a wedding: the bride, wearing a fuchsia and lilac dress—the only two instances of those colours on the canvas—walks beneath a raised red sunshade. The procession occurs in a narrow street, the distant background obscured to the left. Musicians and other revellers lead the parade towards the viewer while passing by bemused onlookers. The colours employed by Fabio Fabbi, the artist, are rich: deep reds, browns, and blues predominate, while the light sandy colour Fabbi uses to paint the buildings is also used to colour the hazy air. Fabbi was one of the leading Orientalist painters of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. The reasons for his success—and his success was great, being admitted to the Academies of Florence and Bologna in his early 20s—are present in this painting. Fabbi’s painterly skill is clear, particularly in the textural manner in which he paints fabrics. The painting is signed in the lower left corner ‘F Fabbi’.
