Blaise Vlaho Bukovac (1855-1922)
[B. Bukovac, Vlacho Bukovac, Blaise Bukovac, Vlaho Bukovac]
Blaise Bukovac is a Dalmation from Ragusa-Vecchia, born in 1855, but a thorough Parisian by adoption.
He visited France as a student, and enrolled himself
among the pupils of the Cabanel studio. He has painted many pictures representing famous heroines in a certain class of French novels,
as "Nana," from Zola, "Sappho," from Daudet, "La Grand Iza" from Alexis Bouvier, etc. Much of his
productiveness, however, has been in the line of decorative subjects, for which
his taste and talent peculiarly fit him.
The story of Blaise Bukovoc has been given in detail in a
previous part of this work. His "White Slave" represents one of the Greek or
Circassian girls who were frequently to be found in Turkish harems, into which they came as spoils
