Coffee Day The Coffee Bearer



Coffee Day The Coffee Bearer (1857), Orientalist painting by John Frederick Lewis July 14, 1804 – August 15, 1876. Lewis specialized in Oriental and Mediterranean scenes and often worked in exquisitely detailed watercolour.

Lewis lived in Spain between 1832 and 1834. He lived in Cairo between 1841 and 1850, where he made numerous sketches that he turned into paintings even after his return to England in 1851. He lived in Walton-on-Thames until his death. He became an Associate of the Royal Academy (ARA) in 1859 and a member (an RA) in 1865.

International Coffee Day also known as Coffee Day or National Coffee Day is an annual event observed on September 29.
