Decorated several time at the Salon of the Société nationale des beaux-arts, Loiseau-Rousseau received a gold medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle and was made Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur the following year. If his corpus also includes animalier bronzes, Medieval and Renaissance subjects, it is particularly thought after for Oriental themes inspired by North Africa. In 1892, a travel grant from the Conseil Supérieur des Beaux-Arts, allowed him to discover this continent for the first time. The following year, Loiseau-Rousseau took part in the Exposition des peintres orientalistes français.

Since his first exhibition at the Salon in 1886, he favoured polychrome associations, notably with bronze and marble. In 1897, he exhibited a bust of the same model as presented here, entitled Salem, Nègre du Soudan (Museum of Picardy, Amiens). Between 1898 and 1910, he exhibited three other marble and bronze middle Eastern figures.

Loiseau-Rousseau's anthropological consideration of African people and his use of polychromy in sculpture, is a double heritage from Charles Cordier (1827-1905) whose bust Nègre du Soudan (exhibited at the 1857 Salon), announced a new aesthetic (Musée d'Orsay, inv. no. RF 2997).
