These article were collected from the website of Esseye Gebre Medhin. I thank his contribution in keeping an intellectual perspective into the vast and unexplored world Ethiopian artists and Ethiopian Art. I hope his articles help shed light into the 19th century artists. I will try my best to find more articles by other authors to include in this post. Fun reads!
