The Tambourine Player (1868). Charles-Emile-Hippolyte Lecomte-Vernet (French, 1821-1900). Oil on canvas.

Lecomte-Vernet studied under his uncle Horace Vernet as well as Léon Cogniet. His Orientalist paintings most often depict a single figure capturing their personality and often functioning almost like a portrait. His debut at the Salon was in 1845 which won him the third place medal.
