||Cogniet and Jalabert
At the outpost of an Arab camp, the favorite slave girl of the Sheik, with his pet hound,
the guardians of his tent, are on the outlook for their master's return from a hunting excursion.
The artist, Gaston C. Saintpierre, is a native of Nimes, and studied art in Paris under Cogniet
and Jalabert. He made various excursions into Algiers and the deserts of North Africa, from which
he returned with a valuable collection of motives. He received his first medal in 1868, and the
Legion of Honor in 1881.
"At the Fountain," by Gaston C. Saintpierre, is a study of an Algerian girl,
one of his souvenirs of African travel.
