Karl Gentz studied in Berlin and Antwerp before moving to Paris in 1846 where he joined the studio of Paul Delaroche (1797-1856) then under the directorship of Charles Gleyre (1806-1904). A preoccupation with Orientalist subjects led him to travel widely in Europe and North Africa. After living and working in Spain, Morocco, Egypt, Palestine, and Constantinople the artist settled in Paris at the studio of Thomas Couture (1815-1879). By the 1870s, Karl Gentz was considered one of the most successful German artists of the Orientalist School and counted the Crown Prince of Prussia and Emperor Wilhelm as two of his patrons. In 1874 Gentz was elected a member of the Royal Academy of Arts in Berlin. Dimensions: (framed) 122cm x 130cm (48” x 51”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 98cm x 108cm (38½” x 42½”) Medium: Oil on canvas.
