The Awakening, Ernest Berger
The Awakening, Ernest Berger

Ernest Berger (1857-x)
Teacher of: Arnold Bocklin

Dupont Vicars 1901 Text:
Quite as realistic as Kray's picture is poetic is "The Awakening," by Ernest Berger, an artist of Berlin. Here we have the interior of a harem, with a Georgian favorite of the ripest and most alluring beauty, rousing herself from the nap which she has taken after her bath. Her attitude and expression have about them the grace suggestive of a cat, when it stretches itself after awakening from sleep. The painter is a German of entirely modern impulses and methods, rather in sympathy with the French school than that of his own nation.
