Alfred Stevens (Belgian, 1823-1906) : Girl Wearing a Kimono, n.d. John Mitchell. London. [actually it looks more like a Ottoman Turkish robe]


Detail of an Alfred Stevens (Belgian: 11 May 1823-24 Aug 1906) painting. Born in Brussels, Stevens came from a family involved with the visual arts: his older brother Joseph (1816–1892) and his son Léopold (1866–1935) were painters, while another brother Arthur (1825–99) was an art dealer and critic. His father, who had fought in the Napoleonic wars in the army of William I of the Netherlands, was an art collector.
