Description
Sarti editeur - Sculpture, Oriental warrior - 67 cm (1) - Plaster, polychrome painted - about 1900
France

A large image of an Oriental warrior.
Ca. 1900.
Marked "Sarti editeur".
Restoration to one hand.

In the 19th century, in Europe, under the influence of colonisation by the Great Western powers, there was a great interest in the "(middle) east". This western conception of the Orient is known as Orientalism. In painting and sculpture this is reflected in a wish for exotic scenes such as harem scenes, Oriental warriors etc. This style became very popular, but had a short-lived existence which makes these images quite rare.
