Part IV. Rudolph ERNST
Here is another prolific artist.
Perhaps he bought it here…
The Rug Merchant
Smoking The Hookah
Gnaoua in a North African Interior
Preparing for Duty - and an interesting kilim too
A Moorish Interior
Although thedimensions of the Kazak vary, I think it’s the same rug.
The following images show also a recurrent Anatolian prayer rug (Ladik?)
By the Entrance
The Flower Merchant
Favorite of the farm - if it’s the same rug, Ernst enlarged it.
Perhaps the following two have the same rug again - with some licenses
The Harem Bath
An Afternoon Show
Detail of the above:
Another repeated rug. I cannot quite situate it. Reminds me the so-called Chichi.
Interior of Rostem Pasha Mosque Constantinople
The Reader - this is a watercolor on paper, signed and situated "Paris"
Other paintings with rugs:
An Arab Sage dated 1886
The Money Changer
The Favorite dated 1872
