Rudolf Ernst (1854-1932)[edit]

Added to list, since he is at least "notable" enough for his own WP article. Perhaps this list (and others?) should be spun-off as separate list? ~Eric F 74.60.29.141 (talk) 15:41, 5 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just for the record, there is now a List of Orientalist artists which now contains some 400 names and is growing rapidly. Rudolf Ernst is in the list along with other notable and minor artists, photographers, sculptors etc. BronHiggs (talk) 07:17, 12 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article Leads with Left-Wing Indoctrination[edit]

I searched on Wikipedia for an article on orientalist art, a significant artistic movement of the 19th century, and instead found left-wing indoctrination criticizing all of Europe and America and directing me to read a harshly critical book by Edward Said, who I never heard of, published in 1978.

How about if I am not interested in reading a book by Edward Said published in 1978? How about if I want to read about Orientalist Art and the artists that painted in that genre? Where do I go? Clearly, I do not go to Wikipedia, because here we see the umbrella term of "Orientalism" being used to criticize all of the Western artists, poets and writers that were inspired by the cultures outside of the West.

Will Wikipedia discuss the artists that painted Orientalist works, without explicitly directing the reader on how to think and feel about them?

It seems to me that there is a great fear on Wikipedia, lest people make up their own minds about things, and articles such as this one are prefaced with cues on how to think and how to feel and how to draw the proper (left-wing) conclusions.

It is jarring to me, that instead of leading with facts and information, this article leads instead with the left-wing slant, telling the reader that all art, philosophy and literature inspired by cultures outside of the West is horrible racist wickedness and the result of colonialism, and directing the reader to study colonialism.

Hebraism[edit]

This is a branch of Orientalism, but there is no due mention of it in this article. I tried to insert a passage but it was reverted two times. Why?2601:84:4502:61EA:B45E:2270:6C0B:A28A (talk) 02:48, 31 December 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

orientalism also served as a research method for British to establish colonial regime in south Asian nations . — Preceding unsigned comment added by 27.4.190.66 (talk) 22:45, 20 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Critical studies academy/académie des beaux arts[edit]

Under the section on critical studies, I removed the wikilink to Academy as it’s misleading. Left in reference to academy but it’s confusing for the reader. I’m wondering if the reference to academy is actually to the Academy des beaux-arts. If anyone knows, perhaps they could edit it and wikilink to the article we have on it?
