    Ferdinand Max Bredt is regarded as one of Germany's leading Orientalist painters. Born in Leippzig in 1860, Bredt originally trained as a book dealer; he studied first at the School of art in Stuttgart, before continuing his studies in Munich, under Wilhelm Lindenschmit. He travelled extensively, undertaking voyages to Greece, Italy, Turkey and Tunisia, producing an extensive body of work in oil and watercolour.

    Much of the artist's work is figurative, his mostly female subjects placed amongst exotic interiors or elegant courtyards. Bredt was fascinated with oriental architecture and built his house and studio in Ruhpolding in an Arabian style. His work was exhibited in Paris, Berlin, Chicago and London.

    The present lot is a wonderful example of Bredt's qualities as a painter; his fine attention to detail is coupled with a great sense of atmosphere, his languid figures rendered in soft tones and gentle colours, set against a highly detailed interior.
