      John Frederick Lewis (1804–1876) On the Banks of the Nile, Upper Egypt (detail). Oil on panel, 1876. Yale Center for British Art, Paul Mellon Collection. [B1981.25.418] John Frederick Lewis (1804–1876) was a British paint- er who specialized in exquisitely detailed paintings of Oriental (Middle Eastern) subject matter, inspired by his ten-year residency in Egypt. On the Banks of the Nile, Upper Egypt, painted shortly before Lewis’s death in 1876, depicts a springtime scene in rural Egypt, in which a group of traveling Bedouin and their camels pause to meet the local fellaheen (peasant farmers). One Bedouin man and his saluki hunting dog rest at the edge of the river, beneath the towering form of a camel, silhouetted against the sky.
