For the 'Exhibition of Arabs of the Sahara Dessert" at the famous Hippodrome,
an open-air arena for equestrian sports and games. Cheret masterfully depicts
a threatening native rider, in full charge, atop a magnificent steed. With his
cape billowing behind him, the rider's sabre is raised with one hand, rifle held
in the other (a third hand might be needed by a lesser rider to guide the horse).
A wonderfully powerful, masculine departure from Cheret's dancing fairies we have
become so intimate with in his posters
