A pair of late 19th century or early 20th century porcelain vases with delicate chinoiserie scenes painted with intense colors. Both vases show a young European woman wearing Chinese dress. The imaginative scenes portray the China as exotic, colorful and sensual. This Orientalist style of painting stresses the exotic visual spectacle. There is a sense of a moment in time captured in a fantasy world.
Today we understand that this designation reflects a Western European view of the "East," and not the views of the inhabitants of these areas. Scholars often link visual examples of Orientalism alongside the Romantic literature and music of the early nineteenth century, a period of rising imperialism and tourism when Western artists traveled widely to the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia.
