Jean-Leon Gerome Paintings

Jean-Leon Gerome (1824-1904) was an important French painter and sculptor of the academic tradition in the 19th century. His works covered a wide breadth of subjects, including history, Greek mythology, Orientalism, and portraiture. He was very well received and respected during his lifetime. Towards the end of his career he lost popularity due to the rise of Impressionism, however, he taught many students who would later become respected artists in their own right. Some of his students included Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, Hosui Yamamoto, Odilon Redon, among others.
