Delacroix was directly involved in promoting and circulating his work in the popular press. In January 1842, he contributed an article to "Le Magasin Pittoresque" on his recollections of a Jewish wedding in Morocco, the subject of a painting he submitted to the Salon in 1841. An editor’s note stated that the magazine had wished to publish a reproduction of that artwork, but Delacroix only provided a drawing of the musician, which he adapted from the painting.
