This watercolor of an earlier oil painting shows a Northern African woman inhaling the smoke of ambergris burning in the small brazier in front of her. The sweet-smelling incense was believed to ward off evil spirits and also served as an aphrodisiac. The original oil is on view The Clark. Image: John Singer Sargent, Incensing the Veil (detail), 1880, watercolor on paper.
