Description: DESIGNER UNKNOWN L'ALGÉRIE ET LA TUNISIE / PAR LA CIE. GLE. TRANSATLANTIQUE. Circa 1900.
41 1/4x28 1/4 inches, 105x72 cm.
Condition B: minor restoration at edges; minor creases and abrasions in image. Faded.
A European couple is enjoying a serene evening on their terrace in Algiers - a tableaux based on the lines of Victor Hugo's poem "La Captive," taken from his "Orientales." "I love these lands / with their sweet burning scents / against the golden panes / the trembling leaves / the water that courses from the spring / under the leaning palm / and the white stork / on the ivory minaret." The only suggestion that the poster is promoting a shipping company is the ocean liner depicted in the harbor. Orientalist p. 16.
