Description

In the Egyptian Revivalist taste, the princess stands to sinister, adorned with jewellery and wearing diaphanous robes, as her crouching attendant Apollodorus reveals her from behind a tapestry robe, on a veined rouge marble base. The pose of the princess and her servant is drawn from the painting 'Cleopatra before Caesar' by Jean-Leon Gérôme.

Signed 'H. Dumaige' on the cloak.
