Profile Head of a Young Woman

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description A government stipend enabled Müller to attend the 1867 Paris Exposition Universelle, where he was profoundly impressed by the paintings of Eugène Fromentin. In 1873-1874, he visited Egypt. Subsequently dividing his time between studios in Cairo and Vienna, he more fully immersed himself in Arab culture than did most of his European colleagues. The young Egypptian woman is shown facing left. She wears a bluish grey mantle over her head. The background has been lightly painted in a greyish tone. Early Walters catalogues list this work as one of five studies painted from life in Egypt.
