Painting, 1909
Egyptian Fellah". This was painted when Brian accompanied the Flinders-Petrie expedition to Egypt in 1908. A lone figure in a desert landscape. His long dark garment is in stark contrast to the bright white covering to his head and neck and casts a long dark shadow across the sands. He holds a stick across his shoulders, perhaps as a yoke to carry heavy goods. This work gives the impression of rapid brushstrokes, painted in the desert - not a studio work."
