Gérôme painted this stunning picture on his return to Paris, after a twelve-week expedition to the Middle East, at the beginning of 1868. He was then at the peak of his career. He dressed a model of textiles he had acquired in the Levant in his studio. Gerome gave a Turkish title to the canvas, which can be translated as "bad head," which evokes the ferocious mercenaries without faith or law whose only pay was the spoils of their looting.

Jean-Léon Gérome

Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824–1904) was one of the stars of official art under the Restoration and the Second Empire. His history paintings, sometimes spectacular, depict gladiators, cruel Roman emperors, and picturesque or dramatic ancient scenes. Often illusionist, Gérôme's antique paintings appear as precursors of the great Hollywood peplums.

Gérôme is a painter of almost photographic precision and very attentive to detail! He documented himself at length to design his large compositions, visiting museums, and following the debates of specialists in archeology. He puts this science at the service of seductive subjects, sometimes slightly indecent or immoral, such as ancient history, mythology, or the orientalist imagination (he travels elsewhere in Turkey and Egypt).

The painter is a fan of antique reconstruction. It seeks verisimilitude but does not consistently achieve historical accuracy. What matters most is the spectacular effect of his works!
