Georg Macco (1863-1933) Khan el-Khalili district.
Georg Macco was a leading German Orientalist artist. He undertook numerous journeys to North Africa and to the Middle-East. There he found inspiration and motifs for his paintings that eventually made him one of the most sought-after German Orientalist. His works impress with their expression, colour and light effects. They also have a pronounced sense of detail and mood. This oil painting has all these artistic qualities. Macco depicts a busy crowd and merchants in Cairo’s famous bazaar district Khan el-Khalili. The hustle and bustle, the heat , the dust, and the noise are almost tangible.
