"(Fr.) Paris. Pupil of E. Hebert and Leon Bonnat. An artist distinguished for his moorish and oriental scenes. The jewel of the harem. 23 x 35. This is a captivating study of oriental beauty in its most sensuous form. The manner in which the lights, middle tints and shadows are managed, makes this a remarkable picture."
