Striking and hard to find sepia toned print of Salammbo and the Serpent after the 1880 painting by French painter Gabriel Ferrier. Salammbo was the heroine of Gustave Flaubert's 1862 historical novel by the same name. The daughter of an aristocratic general in third century B.C. Carthage, Salambo also was a priestess who used a serpent in her rituals. The novel was a big success and Salammbo became the subject of operas, paintings and sculptures. Gabriel-Joseph-Marie-Augustin Ferrier (1847-1914) was a French portrait and Orientalist painter. A nice quality, matte print with platemark, apparently a photogravure, with good details in the shadow area where a man in a turban plays a zyther. In good used condition with toning, spotting and small tear to edges which can be concealed with a mat. Glue residues on the reverse not visible from the front. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: Sheet: 17.3" by 11.7" (44 cm by 29.7 cm); Plate Mark: 10.4" by 6" (26.4 cm by 15.3 cm); Image: 9.6" by 5.2" (24.5 cm by 13.3) approximately.
