The Cairo rug market comes to life in this sumptuous scene that almost echos with the excitedly bartering voices, vibrantly hand-dyed hues and fabled Egyptian mysteries of the age-old trade. One of France's most highly-regarded and decorated artists during his lifetime, Gerome was a member of the Institut de France, a knight in the Legion d'honneur, a member of the British Royal Academy and a recipient of the Grand Order of the Red Eagle. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tomes. Small: 14½"Wx17"H.
