Notes: 1918 Georges-Jules-Victor ClairinFrench, 1843 - 1919 He enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1861 and began exhibiting at the Salon of 1866. He executed decorative paintings for various public buildings in Paris and in the provinces, but is known primarily for his grand historical compositions, Symbolist themes and for the numerous works he exhibited of and for Sarah Bernhardt. Georges Clairin was one of the last successful practitioners of Orientalist painting. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris with Francois Picot and Isidore Pils, and first exhibited at the French Salon in 1866. In 1868, he joined the painter Henry Regnault in Spain, where he was entranced by the Moorish architecture, which quickly figured prominently in his paintings. The present work was painted on that first sojourn to Spain, when he also fell sharply under the sway of the Spanish Orientalist painter, Mariano Fortuny y Marsal. With Regnault, Clairin subsequently traveled to Tangier where he made extensive study of local costume and set up an atelier with Regnault.
