Comparatively little is known or understood of Edwin Lord Weeks earliest works. In part, this must be because many of them fall outside the context of the works for which the artist is primarily knownfinely rendered works recording his travels in Nort h Africa, India and Persia. But t he early works also remain more obscure because so many of them have been held by Weeks extended family and rarely come to market. This group of works is therefore all the more remarkable in its scope and breadth.
