List of Orientalist artists

This an incomplete list of artists who have produced works in an Orientalist style.[1]

Artists listed on this page may have worked across multiple genres, and it should not be assumed that all of their work is necessarily in the Orientalist genre. The list also includes Orientalist photographers, engravers and lithographers. It is worth noting that this listing includes links to the English Wikipedia, and where no English article exists, named artists are linked to foreign language versions of Wikipedia, where available.

Note: This listing uses Spanish naming customs: the first family name is the paternal name and the second is the maternal family name. Artists are listed alphabetically by their paternal family name. For example, the Spanish artist, Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, is listed under "S" for Sorolla, the paternal family name.
