Charles-Théodore Frère, 1814-1886, was a prolific French Orientalist painter. He undertook a further journey to the Near East, visiting Malta, Greece, Egypt and Turkey becoming one of the few artists to paint Beirut, Damascus and Palmyra. In 1853, Charles-Théodore Frère became the court painter and rank of bey by the viceroy of Egypt. In 1869, Egyptian Empress Eugénie commissioned him a series of watercolours. Charles-Théodore Frère paintings were nearly all Orientalist subjects as a result of several journeys. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
