Parisian Women in Algerian Costume (The Harem)

Parisian Women in Algerian Costume (The Harem) is a painting by the French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir completed 1872. Renoir created the painting, which acknowledged the artificial nature of much Orientalist painting by making it clear that these were Parisian women in costume, in homage to Eugène Delacroix's Women of Algiers (1834). Rejected for entry to the 1872 Paris Salon and disliked by the artist, it was eventually sold for a small sum as part of a larger lot. It is now in the National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo.
