The El Golea Oasis


Artist: Charles James Theriat
Title: The El Golea Oasis
Medium: Oil on Canvas



I always enjoy finding the places I see in paintings and see how they compare to what one might see today.  El Golea is an exotic oasis town located in central Algeria and is the southern gateway to the Sahara Desert. Some call it the little Paradise, because in the midst of this seemingly desolated area palm trees and desert roses grow. 

In the 10th century Berber tribes called this place home and built the city of Gardaya. Below are the remains of the city oasis.

The Gorges of El Kantara Near Biskra



Artist: Rene Charles Edmond
Title: The Gorges of El Kantara Near Biskra
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Size:

This painting is so full of color that I thought it warrants a closer inspection. The handling is not as refined as a Gerome or Deutsch painting, but it represents the setting in such vivid complementary colors that it's full of life and visual interest.

Biskra is located in north eatern Algiera, close to the Sahara. The area is arid and there are two large lakes, Melhir and Merouane  that lie almost below sea level. This could be the setting for this painting.



Note the chromatic color choices and impasto brush strokes the artist has used in the foreground.


Some of the figures have nice facial features and others are just hinted at. 



Here is the entire painting. Unfortunately I do not know it's size, but I am guessing it must be large.
