The Healer 1891



signed L. Deutsch 1891
The Healer (le guérisseur), 1891
oil on panel/huile sur panneau
19.3x24in (49x61cm)

This painting was painted on Deutsch's second trip to Cairo in 1890. Having encountered merchants and healers of medicinal herbs, Deutsch was facinated by them and has represented them in another larger painting.

The blue and red tapestry draws the focus on the main figure of the healer. This quiet exchange between the healer and his young customers lacks the usual high finish detail of his other works, yet he still embellishes the surroundings with a beautiful backdrop.
