    I love the works of Gerome,two of my favorite paintings,,the pelt merchant of cairo and the carpet merchant,,I like the space and light in the carper merchant, another favorite painter similar in many ways is Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Very nice choice of painters

    Thanks James; I was actually thinking of featuring the carpet-merchant painting, but I decided on this one because I think it’s a little less well known.
