Luce Artist Biography

Walter Gould grew up in Philadelphia but lived most of his life in Florence. He traveled throughout Asia and the Middle East, including six weeks spent in a barracks in Turkey painting Hungarian refugees. (Letter from the artist, Kutahia, Asia Minor, four days from Constantinople, July 9, 1851, SAAM curatorial file) The writers and artists who followed European armies colonizing the East created seductive “Orientalist” images of the cultures they encountered.
