Jean Leon Gerome

Realism   •   Jean Leon Gerome @ Wikipedia

Already at the age of 23, Jean-Leon Gérôme makes his debut with his painting Hahnenkampf at the Paris Art Salon's annual art exhibition, promptly receiving an award. His work is characterized by travels to Turkey, Egypt and to the excavation sites of Pompeii, which also inspire him to mythical, historical and oriental images also sculptures. Thus arise works such as The Slave Market or The Last Prayer of the Christian Martyr, which represent the sometimes sober cruelty of antiquity. Gérôme strives to orientate himself to the historical-scientific findings of his time and researches them very carefully.

His noblemen, however, love him precisely for his sensual works. Paintings such as Greek interior or night with their subtle subterranean erotic show this side of the artist. His most famous work is Pollice Verso, which strongly influenced our idea of ??gladiatorial fights today, not least because it inspired Irish film makers. Thus, Géromé is rightly described as one of the great painters of historicism in the 19th century.

The filigree attention to detail of the artist says a lot about his personality. He is considered a typical representative of Academic Realism, the strict adherence to the formal technical and aesthetic rules of the art academies in the 17.-19. Century calls. And he was also a fierce opponent of impressionism with its blurring colors and fought vehemently against it. He died in Paris in 1904. © Meisterdrucke
