相關資料

This painting is a sketch for one of Fromentin's most ambitious compositions, that was never actually finished, and that is known from drawings and sketches of which the present painting is one of the most important, after the sketch in the collection of the National Gallery of Ireland. The subject is taken from one of the tragic moments of the French conquest of Algeria, the massacre of Nekmaria before the taking of Laghouat in 1852. It shows the dead bodies of two women, Fatma and M'riem, who were violently killed during the siege. The present sketch shows Fromentin's mastery of the academic tradition and his will to create grand modern history painting. The sketches for l'Incendie are considered as the most sensual compositions in the painter's entire œuvre.
