This painting depicts the interior of a mosque located in Cairo, and built in the 17th century. Jean-Léon Gérôme realised this painting after he visited Egypt several times between 1858 and 1868. It is part of a wider series, depicting Muslim religious practices, and these are now considered some of his most popular art.
This painting represents worshippers, during one of the five daily prayers. That particular mosque was no longer used for prayers when he visited Cairo, but he would have been inspired by other similar sites, and by costumes, sketches, and even photographs, that he brought back from his travels to inspire him.
