A French artist who specialised in painting delicate and gentle pictures of women.
This picture is representative of his oeuvre: depicting a beautiful young woman with sensitivity and tenderness. This is an unusually respectful treatment of L'Odalisque; a celebration of natural beauty and sumptuous costume.
N.B. any unevenness in the colour of the paper/mount is due to the reflection, as the picture is glazed.
