Biography  
Emile Eisman-Semenowsky


Emile Eisman-Semenowsky was most likely born in Poland and was of Jewish descent.  Little is known about his childhood and education.  In the 1880s and 1890s, he spent several years in Paris, where he created the majority of his oeuvre.

Semenowsky was influenced by oriental subjects, a widespread phenomenon in French 19th century art.  His favorite subjects were depictions of women in oriental and antique-style costumes and genre scenes.  His works were very popular among Parisian bourgeoisie, and many of his works were purchased by American collectors.
