Algiers women in their apartment (in french: Femmes d'Alger dans leur_appartement-57 is a re-reading of the title of two leur_appartement 81) -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_pinturas de óleo sobre tela do pintor orientalista francês_cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_Eugène Delacroix.

A primeira versão de Delacroix das Mulheres de Argel foi pintada em Paris em 1834 e está localizada no_cc781905-5cde- 3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_Louvre Museum. The second work, painted 15 years later, between 1847 and 1849, is located at Museu Fabre, at Montpellier,_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-51. Both works describe the same scene: four women together in a closed room. Despite the similar setting, the two paintings evoke completely different feelings through the representation of women. Delacroix's earlier 1834 work captures the separation between women and the spectator. The second painting instead invites the viewer into the scene through the woman's warm and inviting gaze.

As Women of Algiers, along with Delacroix's other Orientalist paintings, inspired many artists of later generations. Em 1888, Vincent van Gogh e Paul Gauguin viajaram para Montpellier para ver a versão de Delacroix de 1849 da obra. A pintura serviu como fonte de inspiração para os impressionistas posteriores e uma série de 15 pinturas e vários drawings by Pablo Picasso in 1954.
