Orientalist Painting - Cesare Biseo (1843-1909)

Oil painting on canvas by Cesare Biseo depicting a soldier in oriental clothes, holding an Arab musket on his shoulders.

Cesare Biseo was born in Rome in 1843, he was a pupil of his father Giovanni Battista. At the invitation of the viceroy of Egypt he went to Alexandria where he frescoed the Government Palace.

He was an orientalist painter of great emotional depth and great chromatic richness. In 1875, with Edmondo De Amicis and Stefano Ussi, he went to Morocco as a member of an Italian diplomatic mission. He then performed the illustrations for the books of Edmondo De Amicis "Morocco" published in 1879 and "Constantinopoli" published in 1882. Among his main works we remember "In the desert" exhibited in Rome at the National Gallery of Modern Art.
