Decamps, Alexandre-Gabriel. 1803-1860

Woman in Oriental Dress

France, 1830s-early 1840s

Decamps's paintings on Oriental themes were extremely popular at the Paris Salons. Unlike the works of other Lesser Romantic artists, his works were marked by bold experiments with colour, lighting effects and technical devices rather than by ethnographic realism (the inclusion of picturesque local types, exotic bright colours, details of everyday life). This work shows the predominance of Decamps's typical painterly rather than linear approach (the washed sketch and soft gradations of warm reddish-brown tones).
