Footnotes

  • Frederick Arthur Bridgman (1847–1928) was born in Tuskegee, Alabama. A pupil of the Brooklyn Art Association and the National Academy of Design, he went to Paris in 1866, and in 1867 he entered the studio of the noted academic painter Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824–1904). He was deeply influenced by Gérôme's precise draftsmanship, smooth glazes, and interest in Orientalist themes. Although he spent most of his time either travelling in the Middle East or in France he became one of the most popular painters in his home country and this has not waned.
