John Frederick Lewis

I saw this painting last at the Watercolour exhibition at Tate Britain. It is painted by John Frederick Lewis of the bazaar outside the mosque in Cairo in the 1840s and the amount of detail you can see in the actual painting is quite incredible. Seriously worth having a look at the exhibition just for this piece.
