  • Painting Description

    "The Colossi of Memnon, Thebes" is a watercolor painting by the British artist Augustus Osborne Lamplough (1877–1930), known for his Orientalist landscapes that capture the essence of Middle Eastern and North African scenes. The artwork depicts the iconic Colossi of Memnon, two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, which have stood for millennia in the Theban necropolis, located near the modern city of Luxor in Egypt.

    Lamplough's work is characterized by its atmospheric portrayal of light and shadow, often illustrating the stark contrasts and vivid hues of desert landscapes. In "The Colossi of Memnon, Thebes," Lamplough captures the grandeur and timelessness of the ancient monuments, set against the backdrop of the clear sky and the rising or setting sun, which casts long shadows and bathes the scene in a warm glow. The painting likely dates from the late 19th or early 20th century, a period when Lamplough traveled extensively in the region, creating works that appealed to the British public's fascination with the exotic and the historical.

    The Colossi themselves are significant in the history of art and archaeology. Standing at about 18 meters (60 feet) high, these statues have been a source of inspiration and awe for travelers throughout the centuries, including many artists and writers. Lamplough's interpretation of the site reflects the romanticism of his era, where the allure of ancient civilizations was often romanticized in art.

    While the painting is a testament to Lamplough's skill in capturing the essence of the Egyptian landscape and its monumental architecture, it also serves as a historical document of the appearance of the Colossi at the turn of the 20th century. The work is a part of Lamplough's broader oeuvre, which contributed to the visual culture of Orientalism and the West's perception of the East during this period.

    "The Colossi of Memnon, Thebes" by Augustus Osborne Lamplough is a significant work within the genre of Orientalist painting, offering viewers a glimpse into the enduring legacy of ancient Egypt and the artistic fascination it has inspired. The painting is held in private collections and museums and continues to be appreciated for its historical value and artistic beauty.
