2) Answer the following question about the reading:Do you agree with the author, Edward Said, that images of non-European cultures are “Othered?” (to be an outsider of the dominant culture). Please use the image of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, The Grand Odalisque, 1814 and Jean-Léon Gérôme, The Snake Charmer, 1870 as reference images, (both are below)Please listt three-five examples of “oreintalism” in the above images.
