Little is known about Octavien Dalvimart, besides the facts that he worked in Britain as a painter and engraver, and that he was living in Paris in 1803.
According to The Costume of Turkey, he travelled for four years (starting in 1796), always drew from nature, and was in Athens in 1797. This elegant work was first published in 1802, and again in 1818 and 1820. It includes sixty drawings of human types from the Ottoman empire. The explanatory texts, in English and French, are based on extracts from works by B. De Tott, J. Dallaway, G.A. Olivier, M. Montague, J. Pitton de Tournefort, Μ. D’Ohsson and others.
Dalvimart's drawings have been used in similar albums and illustrated other travel accounts. Human types are precisely drawn and handsomely depicted in very real colours. (Text source: Travelogues)
