+++++++

The painting s fiction recalled Van Loo s history as court painter to the King of Sardinia in Turin a few years before, where he had met his wife, the singer Christina Antonia Somis, who is pictured as the Pasha' s mistress. The slightly less personal pendant, The Grand Turk giving a Concert to his Mistress , was painted for a different patron, a certain Fagon. In it Christina Somis is cast as a harpsichordist (femme jouant du clavecin), a role closer to her actual profession, who plays and sings for the Grand Turk and his mistress (modelled on a different woman).

The constant factor in both subjects was the fantasized projection of the artist s wife into leading roles as mistress and as singer. It would have unthinkable for Van Loo to exhibit these paintings in public had the portrait-figure not been his wife. Her status as a foreigner and a professional singer also worked to condone his public allusion to her identity, particularly within the club-like atmosphere of the Academy s exhibitions during the early decades of the century, when the assembly of acquaintances who collected in its rooms was not so far removed from the society gatherings at which Christina Somis performed

++++++++

Van Loo avait épousé à Turin une femme de mérite, soeur de Somis, célèbre violon en son temps. Elle était elle-même excellente musicienne, et chantait très agréablement.

Elle reste veuve, sans fortune; mais elle obtiendra sans doute une pension du roi. Il en a eu une fille fort jolie, qui est morte, et deux garçons qui, bien loin d' avoir des talents, ne promettent pas même d' être de fort bons sujets
