"Moorish Interior" by Frederick Arthur Bridgman

"Moorish Interior" by Frederick Arthur Bridgman

A group of odalisques are being entertained by a dancing girl with a tambourine, but are interrupted by three visitors. The central figure looks very like the The Nubian Storyteller from another of Bridgman's paintings, and the dancer's diaphanous robe is rather like his Reclining Beauty.
