A pupil of Gerome, Courtois was mainly a painter of biblical and literary subjects. This attractive small picture was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1890 simply as ‘A Study’. The background seems to be a gold wallpaper. The girl’s kimono reflects the contemporary fashion in Paris for all things Japanese.
