Catalogue Note

Quoted in Fraternité, Paris in 1945, around the year this work was created, Waldemar George describes Kisling's works and notes: "Beautiful coloring, as dense as enamel, a design of a Persan illuminator who might have known Ingres, a strange intelligence of beings, such are the distinctive traits of Kisling." (Jean Kisling, Kisling, 1891-1953, Turin, 1982, vol. II, p. 57).
