Charles Sprague-Pearce | Academic Orientalist painter

During the mid-nineteenth century, before America had truly established its claim to artistic originality, American artists were seduced by the fascinating Parisian art scene. During the latter half of the nineteenth century an important group of American artists congregated in France, among them Mary Cassatt, James Abbot MacNeill Whistler - though only temporarily- and Daniel Ridgway Knight, among many others. Another American artist, albeit one who has not been given sufficient attention, is Charles Sprague Pearce (October 13, 1851 - May 18, 1914), whose presence in Paris and later Auvers-sur-Oise was important for the propagation and appreciation of American artwork, even though he continued to be strongly influenced by the predominant European artistic styles of the period.

Ferdinand Max Bredt | Orientalist painter

Ferdinand Max Bredt is regarded as one of Germany's foremost Orientalist painters of the 19th century. Like many of his compatriots who were interested in the world of the Orient, he travelled extensively in Greece, Turkey and Tunisia, recording his journeys on both paper and canvas.
His works often depict the everyday life in the harem and its inhabitants - luxuriant scenes graced by richly attired odalisques. Alternatively, he depicted women chaperoned in an outdoor setting against a backdrop of exotic architecture. As in the present work, the definining characteristic of the artist is a profound sense of languor and softness, achieved through a wonderful sense of contour and gentle colours.
