A defining and haunting American Impressionist oilon board by Henry James Soulen. This painting was created for use as an interior illustration in the February 15, 1919 issue of the Saturday Evening Post(included in sale). Known for his Orientalist exotic aesthetic, Soulen was an early student of Howard Pyle. With Soulen's signature heavy expressive brush strokes and impasto technique, this work was exhibited in 1983 at the Delaware Art Museum.
