Harem Girl by Xavier Sager*
Oil on canvas of a Harem girl sitting and admiring her reflection in the mirror she’s holding in front of her.
Painted in strong colours with the unseen source of light illuminating her features while the rest of the image remains in somewhat darker shades.
The deep red curtains behind, with their dark folds hidden from the light, provide a contrasting background to the young girl, as she sits flanked by a vase of flowers on one side and a large urn on the floor beside her.
A mysterious shadowy figure looking to be the girl’s attendant looms over her almost out of sight at the top left of the picture.
Painted by the French artist Xavier Sager (1870-1930), this work dates from around the 1920’s.
Signed lower left, the image measures 63 X 52 cm and the overall measurement, including the frame, is a fraction below 75 X 64 cm.
