Esther by Chassériau

This interpretation of Esther is by the French painter Théodore Chassériau (1819-1856).
He was a student of Ingres and therefore its in a typical classical linear style, nearly two-dimensional. But also there is a romantic influence with its strong colours and the orientalistic touch.
