Mountains in North Africa, with a Bedouin Camp
Gustave Guillaumet

It is difficult to date this oil sketch precisely, since Guillaumet visited North Africa ten times between 1862 and 1867. A range of hills can be seen rising from a valley floor. White-robed Bedouins move across the foreground away from their dark tents. The paint has been applied freely and in some areas thickly, suggesting that the sketch was painted quite quickly.
