Jean Leon Gerome (1824- 1904). Gerome is from the group of artists called the Orientalists. He is also one of the best known from the movement. Gerome captured the grandeur of the Middle East/Africa in his paintings. Architecture, figures, light, and color. He was master of them all. He also did paintings that handled other points in history. My favorite is the painting of the Gladiator. His paintings are like time portals to ages long past.

Gerome’s work is celebrated across the world. There are books available on Orientalism and if you’re lucky (like me) you might stumble across some of his work in a museum. I’ve attached a website that has a large collection of his work.
