Peintre suisse (1702--1789 à Genève). Fils d'émigrés huguenots de Montélimar, il passa la plus grande partie de sa vie à l'étranger. Après un apprentissage à Genève chez le miniaturiste Daniel Gardelle, il séjourne à Paris (1723-1736) et devient l'élève de Jean-Baptiste Massé. Il se rend à Rome (1736), où il fait la connaissance du chevalier William Ponsonby, le futur lord Bessborough, avec qui, en 1738, il part pour Constantinople (1738-1742), d'où il ramènera une série de dessins de voyage (Paris, Louvre et B. N.) à la pierre d'Italie et à la sanguine, d'une précision qui ne manque pas de charme. Quelques-unes de ses meilleures scènes de genre sont le fruit de ces quatre années passées en Turquie, alors très à la mode en Europe : citons le précieux double portrait de Monsieur Levett et Mademoiselle Glavani en costume turc du Louvre, probablement peint sur place, à Constantinople. Voyageur infatigable, Liotard séjourne à Vienne (1743-1745), où il peindra son pastel le plus célèbre, le portrait de Mlle Baldauf (la Belle Chocolatière, 1745, Dresde). Il retourne à Paris, où, en 1749, il est présenté à la Cour par le maréchal de Saxe, dont il vient d'exécuter le portrait. S'il expose à plusieurs reprises à l'Académie de Saint-Luc, il essuie de nombreux déboires avec l'Académie royale de peinture, dont il ne réussira jamais à devenir membre. Liotard quitte la France pour Londres (1754) et pour la Hollande et, en 1757, s'installe à Genève. Il est riche, célèbre et devient le portraitiste attitré des notabilités de la ville et des étrangers de passage. Plusieurs portraits au pastel exécutés à cette époque comptent parmi les meilleurs. Son style est devenu plus rigoureux, son dessin plus précis : le portrait de Madame d'Épinay (musée de Genève), admiré par Flaubert et par Ingres, en est peut-être le plus parfait exemple. De retour à Vienne en 1762, il dessine aux trois crayons les portraits des onze enfants de Marie-Thérèse (musée de Genève). Un nouveau séjour à Paris (1770-1772) et à Londres, où il expose avec succès à la Royal Academy, et un dernier voyage à Vienne précèdent son retour à Genève, en 1778. Le Portrait de l'artiste âgé, (on connaît aujourd'hui 22 autoportraits de Liotard), daté de 1773 (musée de Genève), par le jeu subtil de la lumière, les reflets dans les ombres, les rapports des tons, la spontanéité de la touche, dénote un métier libre, dégagé de toutes conventions et une audace à laquelle Liotard n'était pas habitué. Durant les dernières années de sa vie, retiré à Confignon, près de Genève, il peint des natures mortes (musée de Genève et coll. Salmanowitz) — traitées d'une manière très sobre, avec une certaine ingénuité même, qui peuvent se ranger parmi les chefs-d'œuvre de ce genre et rivaliser avec celles de Chardin — et un étonnant Paysage avec une vue de montagnes près de son atelier (Rijksmuseum). L'art de Liotard s'oppose à l'art français du XVIIIe s., épris de brio, de grâce et de charme. Sa conception esthétique, d'une indépendance et d'une originalité parfois déconcertantes, fut à la fois la force et la faiblesse de son génie. Il est typiquement genevois par son goût de l'analyse et de l'observation, par son indépendance, qui lui fait mépriser les écoles à la mode ; il use d'un langage pictural extrêmement dépouillé, se refusant à toute concession tendant à embellir ses modèles. Sa première et son unique préoccupation est de faire "vrai" — d'où son surnom de "peintre de la vérité". Coloriste sensible, Liotard possède au plus haut point la science des valeurs. Ses pastels n'ont pas la pénétration psychologique de ceux de La Tour ni l'extrême raffinement de ceux de Perronneau, mais leur prix réside dans le rendu scrupuleux de la réalité. Ses dessins de portraits, très épurés, annoncent parfois la clarté et la stylisation d'Ingres. Liotard est également l'auteur du Traité des principes et des règles de la peinture (Genève, 1781). Sa conception de la peinture "miroir immuable de tout ce que l'univers nous offre de plus beau" s'oppose vivement à la "peinture de touches" de ses contemporains et lui fait affirmer qu' "on ne voit point de touches dans les ouvrages de la nature, raison très forte pour n'en point mettre sur la peinture". Il s'insurgea et lutta contre cette opinion qu'il jugeait erronée, contre cette naïveté des "ignorarts" qui "n'ont aucune connaissance des principes de l'art".

Tilt up "The Luncheon" 9. Close up "Boy blowing bubble" 10. Set up of curator MaryAnne Stevens, Director of Academic Affairs, Royal Academy of Arts, talking to journalists 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) MaryAnne Stevens, Director of Academic Affairs, Royal Academy of Arts: "He's a totally committed portrait painter, but also and very importantly what this exhibition demonstrates is that when he came to paint scenes from contemporary life, which was the other aspect of his art which was very important, he used his family and his friends whom he had painted in portraits as models in these scenes of contemporary Parisian life." 12. Mid of exhibition 13. Mid of women looking at "Mme Manet in the Conservatory" (1879) depicting his wife 14. Close up of "Mme Manet in the Conservatory" 15. Pan of several paintings all of them depicting his wife - the last one on the right is "Woman with a cat" (1880) 16. SOUNDBITE: (English) MaryAnne Stevens, Director of Academic Affairs, Royal Academy of Arts: "What is not new is the identification of the people of the people in a painting like "Music in The Tuileries Garden" or "The Luncheon" or The Railway. What is new and is brought to the fore in this exhibition is the significance of us knowing who they are within the painting. It is one thing to use a figure that you know just as a model in a painting, but is another thing for the artist to say I want you the viewer to identify that figure as Baudelaire, because that's very important, it then becomes a portrait of my life and that is something that has not been done before." 17. Zoom into "Music in the Tuileries Garden" (1862) 18.

Various of Sophie taking picture of portrait of French Prime Minister Clemenceau 27. SOUNDBITE: (French) Sophie Ponet Larget-Piet, art critic and writer for L'Echo magazine: "All eyes are now on this artist, who recovers his "titles of nobility". Because he had been a bit overshadowed by the Impressionists - as he had been assimilated to that group - and after that by the post-Impressionists and the Cubists, and here we realise with these two exhibitions - the previous one in Paris (focusing on Manet and costumes) and this one in London - we discover a Manet who opens the door to Modernism." 28. Women looking at portraits and commenting 29. Close up of "The Railway" (1873) 30. Man with headphones listening to explanation with "The Railway" in background 30.

Situated where the Rhône exits Lake Geneva, it is the capital of the Republic and Canton of Geneva. The municipality (ville de Genève) has a population (as of December 2017) of 200,548, and the canton (essentially the city and its inner-ring suburbs) has 495,249 residents. In 2014, the compact agglomération du Grand Genève had 946,000 inhabitants in 212 communities in both Switzerland and France. Within Swiss territory, the commuter area named "Métropole lémanique" contains a population of 1.26 million. This area is essentially spread east from Geneva towards the Riviera area (Vevey, Montreux) and north-east towards Yverdon-les-Bains, in the neighbouring canton of Vaud. Geneva is a global city, a financial centre, and a worldwide centre for diplomacy due to the presence of numerous international organizations, including the headquarters of many agencies of the United Nations and the Red Cross. Geneva hosts the highest number of international organizations in the world. It is also where the Geneva Conventions were signed, which chiefly concern the treatment of wartime non-combatants and prisoners of war. In 2017, Geneva was ranked as the world's fifteenth most important financial centre for competitiveness by the Global Financial Centres Index, fifth in Europe behind London, Zürich, Frankfurt and Luxembourg. A 2009 survey by Mercer found that Geneva has the third-highest quality of life of any city in the world (behind Vienna and Zürich for expatriates; it is narrowly outranked by Zürich). The city has been referred to as the world's most compact metropolis and the "Peace Capital". In 2017, Geneva was ranked as the seventh most expensive city in the world. Geneva was ranked third in purchasing power in a global cities ranking by UBS in 2018.

These depictions are usually done by writers, designers, and artists from the West. In particular, Orientalist painting, depicting more specifically "the Middle East", was one of the many specialisms of 19th-century academic art, and the literature of Western countries took a similar interest in Oriental themes. Since the publication of Edward Said's Orientalism in 1978, much academic discourse has begun to use the term "Orientalism" to refer to a general patronizing Western attitude towards Middle Eastern, Asian, and North African societies. In Said's analysis, the West essentializes these societies as static and undeveloped—thereby fabricating a view of Oriental culture that can be studied, depicted, and reproduced. Implicit in this fabrication, writes Said, is the idea that Western society is developed, rational, flexible, and superior.
