'Little Fatima' has an added interest because of its Orientalism. Leighton first showed an Oriental subject, a `Reminiscence of Algiers' at the Society of British Artists in 1858. Ten years later, in 1868, he made a journey to Egypt and in the autumn of 1873 he worked in Damascus where he made many studies and where he probably gained the inspiration for the present work. Gerald Philip Robinson (printmaker; 1858 - 1942)Mostly declared pirnts PSA.
