EDITORS COMMENTS
This portrait captures the essence of Hormuzd Rassam, a renowned Assyriologist and explorer, in 1869. Painted by Arthur Ackland Hunt, this oil on canvas print showcases Rassam's distinguished features and intellectual aura. Hormuzd Rassam was an ethnic Assyrian who made significant contributions to the field of archaeology. His most notable achievement was the discovery of clay tablets containing the Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest known works of literature. This groundbreaking find revolutionized our understanding of ancient Mesopotamian culture. In this portrait, Rassam is depicted as a confident and learned man. With his meticulously groomed moustache and beard, he exudes wisdom and authority. Seated comfortably with a book in hand, he appears deeply engrossed in his studies. The presence of a map or atlas beside him suggests that he is planning or reflecting upon his many travels. As an avid traveller himself, Rassam explored regions like Abyssinia (modern-day Ethiopia) during his career. Wearing a bow tie and dressed impeccably for the occasion, Hormuzd Rassam embodies both scholarly excellence and refined elegance. It is no wonder that he became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society due to his remarkable achievements in exploration. This print allows us to glimpse into the life and accomplishments of this extraordinary individual whose work continues to shape our understanding of ancient civilizations today.
