Encyclopedia > Edwin Long

Edwin Long was a British painter who was born in Bath in 1829 and died in 1891 of pneumonia. He was an orientalist, depicting Biblical and Middle Eastern subjects with astute accuracy, and a romanticist. In 1854, under the advice of the artist John Phillip, he travelled abroad to Spain, and later to Egypt and Syria. This inspired him to create his more lucrative paintings, such as The Babylonian Marriage Market.
