Adrien Henri Tanoux 1865-1923

The next commission

"The next commission"
signed and dated 'H. Adrien Tanoux 1889-' (lower right)
oil on canvas
(100 x 72.7 cm.)

This curious painting by Adrien Henri Tanoux was sold unframed by Christie's on March 13, 2001 in New York for $10.545 USD. This almost humoristic painting, entitled "The next commission" seems to imply that things were going well in 1889, and that perhaps Orientalist paintings were earning good money (see the previous page for an 1887 example).
