Jean-Leon Gerome Paintings

Jean-Leon Gerome was a French painter and sculptor who produced many works in a historical, Orientalist style. Born at Vesoul (Haute-Saône), he went to Paris in 1841 where he studied at the Academie Julian and worked under Paul Delaroche, whom he accompanied to Italy (1844-1845). On his return he exhibited The Cock-fight, which gained him a third-class medal in the Salon of 1847. The Virgin with Christ and St John and Anacreon, Bacchus and Cupid took a second-class medal in 1848. He exhibited Bacchus and Love, Drunk, a Greek Interior and Souvenir d'Italie, in 1851; Paestum (1852); and An Idyll (1853). In 1854 Gerome made a journey to Turkey and the shores of the Danube, and in 1857 visited Egypt. To the exhibition of 1855 he contributed a Pifferaro, a Shepherd, A Russian Concert and a large historical canvas, The Age of Augustus and the Birth of Christ. The last was somewhat confused in effect, but in recognition of its consummate ability the State purchased it.

Gerome's reputation was greatly enhanced at the Salon of 1857 by a collection of works of a more popular kind: the Duel: after a Masquerade, Egyptian Recruits crossing the Desert, Memnon and Sesostris and Camels Watering, the drawing of which was criticized by Edmond About. Gerome's best paintings are of Eastern subjects; among these may be named the Turkish Prisoner and Turkish Butcher (1863); Prayer (1865); The Slave Market (1867); and The Harem out Driving (1869). He often illustrated history, as in Louis XIV and Molière (1863); The Reception of the Siamese Ambassadors at Fontainebleau (1865); and the Death of Marshal Ney (1868). His students included: Dagnan-Bouveret, Lecomte du Nouy, Thomas Eakins, Frank Boggs, Frederick Arthur Bridgman, Kenyon Cox, Dennis Miller Bunker, William DeLeftwich Dodge, Wyatt Eaton, Alexander Harrison, Robert Lee MacCameron, Siddons Mowbray, Lawton Parker, Harper Pennington, William Picknell, Julius Stewart, Abbott Handerson Thayer, Vasili Vasilyevich Vereshchagin, Douglas Volk and J. Alden Weir. Jean-Leon Gerome died in 1904 and was buried in the Montmartre Cemetery.
