Biography Robert George Talbot Kelly
Born in Cheshire, English, Robert Talbot Kelly was a British Orientalist painter and illustrator well-known for his depictions of North Africa. The son of noted landscape artist, Robert George Kelly, Talbot Kelly was inspired to take up painting himself after taking an inspirational maritime voyage in the 1880s. In 1883, he settled in Egypt where he opened a studio in Cairo, traveling throughout the country to paint the villages and desert communities he encountered, particularly the Bedouins. Fluent in Arabic, Talbot Kelly remained in Egypt until 1915, and although he returned to London for his health and aging years, he remained a devoted painter.
