Gunnar Berndtson was a Finnish artist who studied under Jean-Léon Gérôme, a superstar of academic painting known for his historical and orientalist subjects. He was also enamored of Ernest Meissonier, a history painter who once spent 14 years on a highly realistic depiction of Napoleon ordering a cavalry charge (Friedland, 1807).

A flawless rendering of exotic figures amid lavish architecture, Almée, an Egyptian Dancer is characteristic of the attention to detail that he brought to own work. He completed it while residing in Egypt as a correspondent for Le Monde illustré, France’s leading illustrated news magazine.
