#Artini with Corcoran Gallery of Art's 1869 Society at #TheGibsonDC

Henri Regnault was born in Paris in 1843 and killed in 1871 in one of the last battles of the Franco- Prussian war. Yet the young man had already made a name for himself in the Paris art scene. After winning the prestigious Prix de Rome in 1866, Regnault obtained permission to discover other cultures rather than spend the duration of his scholarship in Italy.
During his first trip to Spain in late 1868, he became fascinated by the various Spanish “types” he encountered, particularly the Moors and the exotic toreadors in their colorful costumes.
Taking his inspiration from local legends, he painted a series of paintings of Moorish kings of Grenada. Head of Moor was acclaimed for its modern style of the time, the bold colors and lush, free brush strokes.
Via Granada, Regnault went on to Morocco and established a house and studio In Tangier where he intended to stay indefinitely. At the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, however, Regnault volunteered for military service and returned to France. Shortly before the end of the war he died in battle at age 27.

According to #February edition of #Washingtonian Magazine, #TheGibsonDC is one of DC's #BestofUStreet :)


"Hiding behind an unmarked entrance next door is the retro-elegant Gibson, another Hilton creation, which looks like a place Dorothy Parker would love. You might have to wait for a scarlet booth or barstool (no standing allowed) and the meticulously measured antique cocktails can take upward of 15 minutes to make, but it's worth it—this is one of the most romantic drink spots in DC. "
