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.
