Catalogue Note

This exuberant bust is a rare depiction of an Orientalist subject in Carrier-Belleuse's extensive oeuvre. Heavily romanticised and reminiscent of allegorical models such as Le Reveil, the present bust forms a contrast to the work of ethnographic sculptors such as Charles Henri Joseph Cordier (1827-1905).
