  • This painting was exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1866 with a pendant, 'The Femme Fellah (Asie-Mineure)' (destroyed in 1870), which was bought by Napoleon III in competition with many collectors and dealers. Both pictures were painted in Paris from models in costume before Landelle had visited the Middle East.
