Jean Joseph Benjamin Constant

 

Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant (1845 – 1902), was a French painter and etcher best known for his Oriental subjects and portraits. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse, where he was a pupil of Alexandre Cabanel. A journey to Morocco in 1872 strongly influenced his early artistic development and lead him to produce Romantic scenes under the spell of Orientalism.
