“Orientalism isn’t a dirty word anymore. The Yale Center for British Art’s (BAC) two new exhibits, ‘The Lure of the East: British Orientalist Painting, 1830-1925,’ and ‘Pearls to Pyramids: British Visual Culture and the Levant, 1600-1830,’ lay out the images and influence of the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East during the latter half of the millennium. Overall, these exhibitions have found a way of presenting controversial subject matter that promotes discussion on this thorny subject rather than polarizing the audience or attempting to propose an answer.”
