Raks al Sayf or sworddance
Photogravure of Jean-Léon Gérôme on the theme sworddancer. Gérôme used frequently the same character in different settings. Here he let's her dance in some kind of basement. The playing of the light creates an entirely different atmosphere completely in contrast of another work of him where she's dancing in a palace where the light is more diffuse. Gérômes' signature above the jar with drinking water is as usual barely visual.
