Caliph & Entourage

Caliph & Entourage

Piece description from the artist

This painting stems out of my love for art history. It is a study of "Ali-Ben-Hamet, Caliph of Constantine and Chief of the Haractas, Followed by his Escort" painted in 1846 by Théodore Chassériau, a mixed race romanticist painter. This mesmerizing equestrian portrait was my first whole-hearted attempt at a grisaille before really starting the color part of the painting. Thank you Chassériau for continuing to inspire artists into the 21st century!
