A view of the Abbasid palace of Qasr al-'Ashiq, built 877-882. From Cain's 'Second Mesopotamian Set', limited to 40. Charles W. Cain (1893-1962) produced 74 etchings and engravings of scenes in Iraq, Persia, India and Burma (Myanmar) between the 1920s and 1930s, likely inspired by his service in the Border Regiment in India and Mesopotamia. With such a distinctive thematic subject Cain gained a strong reputation as an Orientalist printmaker.
