Details: This poster is of Salome, by Henri Regnault. It shows a woman sitting, with a platter in her lap.
Alexandre-Georges-Henri Regnault (31 October 1843 - 19 January 1871) was a French painter. On leaving school he successively entered the studios of Antoine Montfort, Louis Lamothe and Alexandre Cabanel. In 1866 he won the Prix de Rome with a work of unusual force and distinction Thetis Bringing the Arms Forged by Vulcan to Achilles. The past in Italy did not touch him, but his illustrations to Wey's Rome show how observant he was of actual life and manners. After a further flight to Africa, he painted Judith, then, in 1870, Salomé, and, dispatched from Tangier, Execution Without Hearing Under the Moorish Kings, in which the painter had played with the blood of the victim as if he were a jeweller toying with rubies.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
