"Combing hair" by Osman Hamdi Bey. Painted by the Turkish artist in about 1900. Osman Hamdi was unusual as a native of the Ottoman Empire who had trained with western orientalist painters like Gerome. His images are a lot more conservative than the French artists and are similar to J.F. Lewis's work from half a century before.
