Thomas Dewing was born in Boston and apprenticed to a lithographer as a young man. He studied at the Academie Julian in Paris and returned to Boston in 1878. The Sorcerer's Slave was created while he was still in Paris. He moved to New York at the age of twenty-nine two years later and married Maria Oakley the next year when he began teaching at the Art Students League of New York. Her family was well connected to the art world and developed in a noted tonalist painter favoring the refined female figure situated in a moody circumstance. These works appeared to be a sensitive and detached portrayal of his subjects. In 1888 he was elected into the National Academy of Design and joined the Secession of 1897 in the next year. He did not paint much after 1920 and his wife died in 1927. Dewing himself died in New York in 1938.
