Gustavo Simoni (1846–1926) A carpet seller in a souk in the Maghreb, signed, dated and inscribed G. Simoni Roma 1902.

Simoni, an Italian Orientalist, gathered fame especially for his fine Orientalist watercolours which show a fine attention to detail and use of a delicate colour palate.  Among his famous clients was, King Umberto I of Italy.  Simoni won a number of prestigious awards including the Gold Medal at the Salon of Paris in 1889, and in 1895 at the Exposition of Fine Arts in Rome. 

This particular watercolour of a carpet seller is a fine example, and must rank among his best works.
