In 1874, the Belgium orientalist painter Jean-François Portaels (1818-1895) realised this portrait.
The painting “Salomé” was realised by Paul Antoine de la Boulaye in 1909. Salome is the daughter of Herodiade and Herod the Great (Herod I). She inspired painters like Gustave Moreau and Paul Antoine de la Boulaye. She is often represented dancing in front of her stepfather Herod Antipas to charm him. She is also frequently painted holding the Jean Baptiste’s head. She asked Herod Antipas to kill Jean Baptiste and give her his head in order to prove to her his love.

Sadaharu Aoki is a reputed Japanese pastry maker. The Japanese flavours (black sesame, matcha…) add a Japanese touch to French pastries (eclairs, puff cakes, Opera…). My favourite pastry is the black sesame eclair. It is delicious!
I tasted also the matcha puff cake and It was very tasty. Matcha is a traditional Japanese green tea which is made from powdered green tea leaves. Besides, i savoured a delicate genmaicha tea (Japanese tea made from roasted tea leaves and toasted rice).
I went to the Aoki’s shop located 56, boulevard de Port-Royal 75005 paris. There are others shops in Paris.
