Born in Alabama, Bridgman arrived in Paris from America in 1866, and entered the studio of Jean-Léon Gérôme at the École des Beaux-Arts the following year. Under Gérôme’s tutelage, he became increasingly interested in Orientalist subjects. However, it was his own travels to Algeria and Egypt from 1872 onwards that lent his paintings their unique character and high degree of verisimilitude.
